fsck errors


i working on an old phone system.. turns out its got a UNIX HDD in it.. unfortunatly.. someone unplugged it without shutting it down.. (ill kill them) so i pop it into a machine.. boot into knoppix and try to run fsck. first off i cant remember if it needs to be mounted or not.. and second off i get 2 choices... 1 is truncate first to 1843200 bytes 2nd is truncate second to 0 when i choose 2 it says "leaving file system intact" and quits.. when i choose 1 it says "Internal error: Could not find cluster 6513 in chain starting at 0" id really like to get this fixed so we dont have to buy a new harddrive from this company. (btw phone system is a 3com NBX100)

thanks ahead of time..

You don't want to EVER run fsck on a mounted filesystem. As for the rest, sorry I can't help further.

" i cant remember if it needs to be mounted or not.."

The partition that you are running fsck must be umounted. Also it is importatn that you pass fsck the correct filesystem type:
umount /dev/hda1
fsck -t ext3 /dev/hda1

"i get 2 choices... 1 is truncate first to 1843200 bytes 2nd is truncate second to 0 when i choose 2 it says "leaving file system intact" and quits.."

I have extensive fsck experience and I don't have a clue what this error message is about. Could you post the lines preceeding this message.
