Somewhere on the screen it should say /bin/fsck -y or something like that . . .
fsck will try to fix the file system - you might be able to do that and everything will be okay.
You can also boot up in Safe Mode
You do know that the unix file system is underneath the Macintosh Operating System
(that is what you see when you do the command +s thing...).
But it sounds like your hard drive has failed . . .
no problems right? just go get a new drive and replace the defective one and get all the
data from your backup drive which you do have right?

I just used fsck -fy in single user mode and now i can get to the password screen in safe mode but when i type in my password, it wont start finder and goes right back to the same startup password screen.
