Is the list that you post is from your install disc? If you have Apple Care, have you tried using the TechToolsDeluxe disc that came with it? If not, DiskWarrior is $99 and a tool no Mac owner should be without. I know you said you don't want to spend money, but sometimes we have to have the proper tools.
You might be abe to fix the problem by re-cloning to your internal from your external, that usually defragments the blocks and makes sure they are contiguous.

My post is the later portion of the results from the verify disk operation from the Disk Utility. When I try to run the repair function from the install disk, it interrupts/cancels the repair when it gets to those errors.
I haven't tried the TechTools disk. I don't have applecare for this iMac, although I did for an older one. Would the same tech tools disk work?
I'd love to get DiskWarrior, since it seems like a good program from what I've heard, but there isn't a budget for that right now.
As far as cloning goes, I may be able to borrow another external drive big enough to clone my entire HD. If doing that is likely to help, I can probably manage that. That's going to be one long cloning operation...
