Can you recall any changes you've recently made to the book (new applications, ram etc...)? You might also want to try an SMC reset to see if that helps - also going to System Preferences/Start-up Items and making sure your main disc is selected.
Macbook 1.8-) Mac OS X (10.4.8) Week 38 base model w/1G Ram
Well, tonight I bring the MacBook here into the living room and it's running without a hitch like it normally does.
The only things that were installed recently were the Airport Update, I ran YASU, and before both I installed X11. So I'm not sure what happened but it corrected itself after all those things I did last night. The only real error I got throughout the whole process was the volume header error, and disk utility supposedly fixed it.

OK, so last night after posting I decided to run Disk Utility to make sure everything was good. It hung and caused the whole system to lock up. It also asked for a Admin password for both Disk Utility and "DiskManagementTool" which seems unusual to me. So I proceeded to re-install Disk Utility using Pacifist. Re-ran Disk Utility, and even though it asked for a Supervisor password twice again, the program ran much better and nothing locked up. So I'm starting to narrow this thing down a little.
I've never had any kind of corruption in Mac OS before, so this is all new to me. I only made a few slight changes so I have to assume that one of those caused this to happen. I tend to think the recent security update might have something to do with, but I'm not sure.White MacBook - Core2Duo 2.0 GHz -, Mac OS X (10.4.8), 1 GB RAM - 80 GB HDD - DL SuperDrive
