Mac OS X repair disk without boot CD

It will always happen, when you have left your installation CD at home: diskutil is reporting errors which have to be fixed.

But: you can not run the repair when you have booted from the disk.

restart the system and hold Option+s during boot.
This will bring you into single user mode.

then run -sbin-fsck -fy and enter exit afterwards.
