Disaster strikes

Ok, how did you mount it rw, and was it stable, it is a machine I was a week
away from putting on the production floor.

you hit the same problem that I had here on unstable a while ago, and
that seems to have gone into sarge as well.

I have no idea what's wrong, but there's definitely a bug somewhere
with either fsck or the init scripts.

fsck claims that the file is not mounted ro, which is absolutely wrong
since it actually _is_, and you have to remount it rw to be able to use
the box...
