single user mode

During the boot process the system stops and queries the user for
a password.  This happens when checking root (/dev/hda3 check forced... 
and root is mounted read-only. 
Aparently, the root file system has been corrupted as it contains an 
unattached inode. My question: what is the password? It won't accept the 
root password at this point.

Would a better approach be to boot off the Rescue disk to run fsck?

Thanks for you help.
