Having some trouble with my Leopard Mac Pro. I'm getting Kernel Panics, according to the Tech Support guy. He suggested running disk utility but I have misplaced my Leopard Install Disc. I can order a new one for cheap, but I am wondering about an interim solution.

Can I download a linux or OSS disk checker to solve my problem? Or will that completely destroy my 10.5 Operating system?

it's a different file system than linux. I'd get a new copy of your install disk, or find the original.
