bad FS errors after (almost) every boot
I am gradually getting desperate.
Almost every time I turn on my linux box e2fsck finds massive errors.
Often times somewhere under /usr/lib/terminfo. I have no idea what
I could be doing wrong. I always shutdown my system with a proper
shutdown or halt command.
Here is a short description of my setup:
I am using 2 x 2GB Quantum SCSI HDs.
On the first there is a Win95, a Win3.11 partition and 2 FAT data
partitions. At the very end of this HD there is the OS/2 Boot Manager.
On the second HD, there is another Win 3.11 partition (primary partition)
and the root, var and swap partitions for Linux. /home is a link to
/var/home, /usr is on the root partition. Hm, did I forget anything
important? Oh, yes, I've got the Debian 1.2.4 distribution installed.
At first, I thought that Win95 is the reason for this behavior, but
in the meantime I found that I get these errors even if I didn't
boot any other OS in between. So there must be something else wrong.
Two days ago it became even worse: I got fs errors while the system
was running. All kinds of bad message appeared in my console. I wanted
to save them so I could tell you the exact words here, but all I got
was "Cannot save, fatal fs errors" or something similar. :-(
Please help, I have no idea how to fix this!
Thanks so much in advance,
