How long for DiskWarrior to boot up? - Mac Applications & Software

It seems that my emac has directory errors from corrupted files. I bought a copy of DiskWarrior to try to fix it but, when I try to boot up off the CD, it hangs. How long should I give it before figuring it's not going to work on this problem and restarting the system? I am a neophyte in this troubleshooting. I understand that my next step, if DiskWarrior won't allow me to boot up, is to back up all my doents and re-install the operaing system. Any words of advice for me? Thansk!...

    Define 'long time.' Mine takes about 2 and one-half minutes to boot
    .... eMac 1GHz, 1G RAM.

    What model Mac and what version DiskWarrior? If you have one of the new
    Macs that will not boot into OS 9, and an old copy of DiskWarrior 2 that
    was on a dealer's shelf (any prior to version 3.0) it will never boot.
