I am trying to repair my IMAC snow leopard. I have never used terminal before but I have a list of the commands but they mostly say NOT FOUND - where am I supposed to be to use the commands.

For one - I copied Applejack onto my computer to try to fix it - how do I find it and use it through Terminal?

I must be losing it, I posted a response to you and now its nowhere to be found.

Anyway thanks for finding this for me I'll give applejack another go and see what happens. I have to say I have never had a problem that defies resolution like this one has, all the checks I've done swear the disk is ok. Anyway thanks I'll give it another shot!:busy:
