Alexstre is on a distinguished road

Yesterday my computer completely stopped booting: it would freeze at the apple logo with the rotating loading icon. After booting from the Leopard CD and running Disk Utility I had the error message (see attached image). After closing Disk Utility the Leopard setup started so I thought "What, might as well try it" so I went out for a while and left the Leopard setup open. I came back a few hours later, my imac was booted on my old installation of Leopard, all my files / programs still there.

I then launched Disk Utility within Leopard, and got the same error message (see attachment again). It says I should backup everything and replace my hard drive by a "working device".

The error message seems kind of obvious but I was wondering, from past experiences, what does it really mean? I have an external hard drive, should I hurry, back up everything and go buy a new drive as soon as possible? I find it weird it booted if it's THAT critical...

Any advice?
