I am trying to repair permissions on my old 2007 iMac via the Snow leopard install cd.  The time remaining text gets to 1 minute and then the bar stops moving and the cd drive starts working quite hard.  That has lasted an hour now and he mouse clicks do nothing, though I can move the cursor.  Should I leave it and let it work or has some sort of crash occurred?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 1gb memory
