Use the original installation disk, #1, and insert it and start up holding down the "C" key. Go to the second screen pull down menu to Utilities > Disk utility and see if you can repair the hard drive. Please let us know your results.

Have you tried with a full PRAM and SMC repair (http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-103...)?

Some of the SMC errors seems to be consistent with yours.
