	Should this be there? I'm pretty sure there should be there.
$ dpkg -S /var/lib/mysql
mysql-server: /var/lib/mysql

	If you have mysql-server installed (and I bet you do since you
have the 'mysql' user) then that directory might have been lost in the
crash.

	Yes, they might be ok. The problem is that the filesystem
structure is not ok.
