SUSE 9.2 crashed and died :(

Hmm, my hdd lost power during operation. I put it back and it was fine, but now suse wont boot up. It fails by services loading, like mysql, apache, ....
doesn`t matter which. It fails sometimes by one sometimes by other. I loaded to init 1 run yast and runlevel edtior and have removed all services except the kernel loading and it boots fine to X. But i need everything as it was. What is the "service manager" in linux, so i can reinstall it with yast and that will probably do the trick. Hdd is in perfect form no errors or nothing. Jst suse screwed some file i guess which is esential for services to star. If i only would know what

Please give me some pointers what i can try out.

If you have the suse CD /DVD then boot with it and then select rescue and yast will help you the "fsck" and restore the system.

Otherwise burn and boot with knoppix CD and open terminal as root and run fsck.reiserfs on the hard disks you have.

Usage: /sbin/reiserfsck [mode] [options] device

--check consistency checking (default)
--fix-fixable fix corruptions which can be fixed without
--rebuild-sb super block checking and rebuilding if needed
(may require --rebuild-tree afterwards)
--rebuild-tree force fsck to rebuild filesystem from scratch
(takes a long time)
--clean-attributes clean garbage in reserved fields in StatDatas
-j | --journal device specify journal if relocated
-B | --badblocks file file with list of all bad blocks on the fs
-l | --logfile file make fsck to complain to specifed file
-n | --nolog make fsck to not complain
-z | --adjust-size fix file sizes to real size
-q | --quiet no speed info
-y | --yes no confirmations
-V prints version and exits
-a and -p some light-weight auto checks for bootup
-f and -r ignored
Expert options:
--no-journal-available do not open nor replay journal
-S | --scan-whole-partition build tree of all blocks of the device
