pick the right partition number
mount -o ro,remount /dev/hda1 /
-- assumes you have enough memory and it wont try to fix
the inodes of the program (reiserfs) you are using to fix the
supposedly bad disk
-- you also risk breaking the / parition too if you're nto
careful, but what the !@##%, its only system files
( nothing important :-) that you dont already have it backed up )
-- you did tar zcvf /another_partition/etc.tgz /etc
of the current state BEFORE you play w/ fsck'ing :-)
do your reiserfsck/ext2 checks ..
-- keep your fingers crossed
mount -o rw,remount /dev/hda1 /
and yeah... i do it all the time when the machine acts wierd,
since its already acting wiered anyway, nothing loss
and fsck'ing might fix it
