Re: How to recover from crash (urgent for me)
do a telinit 1, umount /dev/hda5, e2fsck -c -C 0 -f -v /dev/hda5, reboot
if you run e2fsck several times and there are errors again and again, maybe even each time on different blocks, I would suggest backing up and buying a new disk...
that should do the trick (at least for the good blocks on your disk)
and _please_, dont send html in emails :-/
