Booting Slackware 9.1 errors


Here's what I'm getting while everything is executing in the beginning:

Code:
/dev/hda3 contains a file system with errors check forced.  
 Inode 753554 has illegal block(s)   
 /dev/hda3: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.    (ie., without -a or -p options 
 Type control-d to proceed with normal startup, (or give root password for system maintenence):
If I control-d a few more lines a appear and a reboot it executed.

How are you shutting down your computer? I hope you're not just hitting the power button. Also, you're using ext2(as indicated by your fstab in a different post), any particular reason for that?

ext2 was recommended by another user which I begin not to like after recommending all those seperate partitions, at least that kind of thing wouldn't work to well with smaller amounts of memory. I always logout of user KDE and login to root and do shutdown -.....

This time I changed the etc/ini??? file to runlevel 4 so that KDE would just start up without me having to ask startx. I got my vertical multicolor barage of lines again so I did just shutdown after the system appeared not to be responding graphically.

Rebooting the system several times doesn't help. This has to be manually configured. I don't know what the problem is exactly.

What's wrong with ext2 vs ext3 and the journaling format?

Nothing. Ext3 and whatnot are fine. I saw your fstab and you have about 10 partitions, get rid of them and make 2. 1 big linux one (ext3 or resierfs), and 1 linux swap (or 1 more if you want windows too, make that NTFS though)

You have seperate ones for /usr and /home, I see no reason for this. It is easiest with the least number of partitions.

Hello,

you can use Knoppix and run "e2fsck" from there, and consider to read the manpage!

For e2fsck -? -? /dev/hda3 and just e2fsck this was returned invalid command for bash.

I am a little hesitant about going to NTFS. I will do some googling, but what are some notable disadvantages and advantages to NTFS vs. FAT32?

I don't think I did anything very significant on my Slack so I will reformat to ext3 and I can redo all the configurations once more. I read that ext3 is more convenient for situations like the one I posted about. Can ext3 systems be both read and writen by ext2 systems?

I created a partition for /usr and /home so that if my /root and other system folders crash I can reformat and reinstall that part while retaining such things as programs and all my personal non-system files. I'm using a 512M swap with 310M RAM on my board.

I also have other partitions(18GB 9/10ths of another HD) for files and documents formated to fat32 so that they are accessible not just to Windows XP but to 95(maybe?), 98, 98SE, ME, 2k, XP. I do want both read and write capabilities. Does Linux have read/write capabilities with NTFS?

you have to be "root" for doing this, e.g. with "sudo".

/sbin/e2fsck runs successfully, now what commands will repair what I have?

Also, what is this sbin folder for Slackware?

well, you may try
Code:
e2fsck -pv /dev/hda2
("/dev/hda2" is just an example!)

But I don't guarantee for it, you should read the manpage!

Sorry, but I don't understand the question!

I wanted to know what sbin is used for. Is it a backup of bash?

Okay I pressed yes to a lot of questions about clearing and fixing inodes. I booted KDE but now my left speaker--yes just my left one-- is whistling very loudly. Were files or config files for modules possible corrupted? I don't understand why it's so easy to damage partitions by cutting power.
