Twenty steps to help diagnose and fix system issues
Authored by: granmar on Jan 15, '04 04:38:19PM

I'd like to add this…

I run using Panther 10.3.2 (G4 500/1Gb Server & G3 500/500Mb PowerBook with many external FireWire drives and Belkin 2.4 Ghz wi-fi network.

TURN OFF JOURNALING BEFORE YOU START ANY REPAIRS!

I have Systemworks 2 Norton Utils loaded on separate partitions under Jaguar 10.2.8 and have downloaded Symantec's latest "updates for NU" (December 22nd 2003)

While in Panther, open Disk Utility and DISABLE JOURNALING ON ALL THE VOLUMES YOU WANT TO REPAIR!

This will allow Disk Doctor to fix probably all the problems that Disk Utility could not. Don't be afraid to run Disk Doctor many times until "No Problems Found" is shown. Only when you are satisfied, reboot in Panther and proceed to open Disk Utility and RE-ENABLE JOURNALING.

Happy Problem-free computing! Like me! Hope it helps
