See my FAQ*:
Mind you a bad directory can be caused by numerous issues, and are not limited to hardware issues with the system. Using the hardware test that came with your Mac would be a more reliable indicator of any actual hardware issues.
How long since the last hard drive was repaired?
- * Links to my pages may give me compensation.
It's been approximately 4 maybe 5 months since the last hard drive was worked on and replaced - they couldn't repair it; it was completely dead.
I ran "verify" on the HD last night and it said it was fine, but I'm still not convinced. Are there any other already-installed options on my computer that I should run to make sure things are running smoothly?

Between Hardware Test which shipped with your computer's installation CDs, and Disk Utility, you should be able to detect most issues. Some though you need to take the machine in for service. Third party added items will not normally show up as faulty from Apple's tests. So anything non-Apple hooked up to your machine could be faulty.
