Just out of curiosity I run the disk utility and... it found a failure that it cannot recover... The machine seems to work well but I want to repair this error.
What can I do?

Boot from your OS X install/restore disc. Try running it that way. Often you can't make certain changes to the boot drive while running disk utility from it.

If it still fails, pick up a copy of DiskWarrior. You won't regret it.

In case running it from the install DVD doesn't do the trick, I'd try fsck in single-user mode first (especially to see what error messages come up) before I spend money on any commercial tool.
