I'm sorry to say that it sounds like your disc is on the way out. Back everything up now, starting with important data first (if you haven't done so already), as it may become inaccessible at any time with consequent loss of data. The best way is probably to install a new HDD and swap the data over directly.

Fireballs didn't/don't have the best rep for reliability, I had 2 go on me. 1 staggered along for a couple of weeks before it wouldn't boot at all. The other went in about a day. If I remember right, they didn't make them bigger than 6-8GB so you shouldn't have too much to save. HTH.
