When I ran the DIsk Utility it wasn't run from the disk, would this make a difference? There is a possibility that the hard drive is fairly full, this was my reason in buying the Lacie external and moving files / photos etc.

Firstly how and what should I be deleting to free up memory space?
Secondly how can I complete a Disk Utility repair from the Install disk. If i load the Leopard Install disk the drive seems to recognise the disk but I can't access anything to prompt the Mac to complete a new install or a completely new Disk Utility.

I feel like its kinda like a revolving problem, I suppose it needs lateral thinking and some advice as to what to do first.

Over to you again
