I just got a G4 from a friend so i can learn Mac-ese. In the disk utility, I am verifying the disk (which as far as I gather is de-fragging it) and it won't verify. I says I need to repair the disk, but the repair disk function is not available. What gives?

To repair the startup disk (which is closer to scandisk than defrag) you need to boot off the install disk, select disk utility from the utilities part of the toolbar and run it from there. OS X can't verify the disk it booted off.
