hey guys....

i'm runing a Pismo 400 w/ 192 megs of ram.

on friday, i was downloading mp3's using Scouter, the mac port of scour's client. I was also listening to mp3 files at the time, using soundjam.

al of a sudden--the machine froze. i restarted, and the Disk First Aid screen came up, and it found this error:
"Checking disk “Macintosh HD”.
Checking "Mac OS Standard" volume structures.
Checking "Mac OS Extended" volume structures.
Checking for locked volume name.
Checking extent BTree.
Checking extent file.
Checking catalog BTree.
Checking catalog file.
Problem: Invalid PEOF, 44263, 1388
Test done. Problems were found, but Disk First Aid cannot repair them."

also, when i try to run MS Entourage or IE 5, i get a "type 2 error" dialouge box, and the programs won't start up.

the first error happened once before--when my machine froze while using macster to download mp3s....which seems odd.

anyone know how i can get that unfixable error taken care of, and get my email and browser back??
