fsck -n /dev/hda4

which will flood the screen with errors saying `no' to all fix
questions.  no changes will be made to the filesystem at all.  this
way you can get an idea of how totally hosed the filesystem is.  

the opposite is fsck -y which will answer yes to all fix questions and
`fix' everything that is wrong.  (this can often be more painful then
the disease)
