yes this is normal
the system had mounted the disks when it started trying to run daemons and
such earlier, then it was shutdown without a clean unmount, the file system
was in use as daemons were starting and such. Just do as it asks, log in
using the root password or possibly bolank if you never got the chance to
set one. Run "e2fsck /dev/sdb4" (the disk it is trying to mount) and say yes
to all the errors and such it finds, then hit control d and it should reboot
and you can see what happens when it tries to come up.
