Possibly something from the system got thrown away. Just reinstall the system and do the updates.

how do i reinstall the system ?


Start up from your system installation disk by inserting the disk and holding down the "C" key on start up. Try an "archive and install".


wait .. i dont have a installation disk , where can i find one?


How are you getting to Disk Utility? Do you have another PowerPC Mac with a firewire port? Have to go for a while, mean time look this over and run Disk Utility in Target Mode:
