    did you click verify disk and then get that message???
    if so click the button under(or above) it and select repair disk.

    if you dont get that button or it is greyed out insert your install disk, boot up holding 'C' and then from the drop down menu go to disk utility and then repair your disk. while you are there you should repair your permissions

    Holding down C tells your computer to boot from the cd in the optical drive as opposed to any hard drives with operating systems.

    glad everything worked out
