    Repairing OS X partition without OS X DVD

    I'm trying to repair my boot partition (the only one I have in fact) with OS X installed on it, but if I run disk utility from OS X it tells me I have to reboot with my start up disk, hold C and run disk utility from there. Problem is, I don't have my OSX dvd around, is there something I can download that ~only~ has the utilities that I could use?

    If that doesn't work, there is a 3rd option that I will describe only if needed.
