Superblock errors in RH9


I have a setup with dual boot XP and RedHat 9.
I had wiped and reinstalled the XP partition and now linux will not boot.

I really only have linux on the computer to learn it, and it tells me that I have to run fsck to fix it.

The error states that the superblock says that there are 1883621 blocks and the physical reports 1755101 blocks.

If anyone could help me fix this, I would be greatly appreciative.

Thank you.

so did fsck end up fixing that problem (which it should have) or are you saying you repeatedly get this problem ?

I dont exactly understand what I have to pass to it to make it work.

Do I just run and tell it yes to fix it?

Sorry, I'm a complete moron on this stuff

Has anybody found a solution for this? I am having the same problem with the superblock believing that the hard disk is larger than it is physically reporting to be. I was trying to increase the size of the swap partition in RH9 using parted. I "rm"d the 3rd partition which was the size. "resized" the second partition where my data was and then recreated a larger, primary, linux-swap partition in the empty space. Now I receive that the superblock reports 2887821 (or so) blocks and the physical reports 2384739 (or so) blocks. Those numbers are way off but that's the idea. Any suggestions on how to get this back up again?
