You have to fix the errors on the drive, when you get dropped to a shell run:
fsck -fp /dev/hdx
On the device that is getting errors. It should be listed right before you get dropped to the shell.

Cool

Welcome to LQ!

You should create a new thread instead of resurrecting a 7 year old one.

Whenever you need to to do a fsck on a filesystem it is best to do it in single user mode to insure the security of the filesystem usage thus no possible corruption. A good way would be to boot your install CD/DVD media then perform the fsck on the filesystem.



Just a few links to aid you;

Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking


The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
