If you can't boot from the install disc and correct the problem then DiskWarrior is probably the only thing other than an erase and install that will correct the problem. Sometimes DiskUtility can't repair problems. The disk's directory is the "road map" where everything is located on the disk and a corrupt one manifests itself in various ways. You might try booting with the shift key down to force a disk check but it sounds like DiskUtility can't repair it.
