Help with FS check with e2fsck
I have a dell PE1750 server which would not boot up after a power failure. I am thrown to a shell for maintenance after showing an error in file system check. The server was running - Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon). Please let me know if I can try to recover from this error by booting from the 1st CD of a higher version of linux like RHEL5. I ask this because I do not have the old media with which the system was setup. Can the use of latest OS CD cause any problem? If you can also help me with the proper e2fsck step that would be great.
