Filesystem check error during boot


I have a linux server running redhat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20) and experienced a power failure yesterday. Consequently, the machine shutdown uncleanly and upon reboot prompted me with:

> Yours system appears to have shut down uncleanly
> Press Y within 5 seconds to force file system integrity check .....

I pressed Y and it performed the system check. Then I was prompted with:

> ***An error occurred during the file system check.
> ***Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
> ***when you leave the shell.
> Give root password for maintenance
> (or type Control-D to continue):

I entered the root password and was provided with:

bash: id: command not found
bash: id: command not found
bash: id: command not found
bash: [ : too many arguments
(Repair filesystem) 1 #

I then ran e2fsck on all of the partitions (with the -y flag) except root and swap. All partitions were reported as clean. I then rebooted the computer. The root and swap file systems were checked as being clean and mounted with an [OK] indication. The remaining filesystems were checked as clean, but [FAILED]. The system then dropped back to you:

> ***An error occurred during the file system check.
> ***Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
> ***when you leave the shell.
> Give root password for maintenance
> (or type Control-D to continue):

At this point I am unsure how to proceed.

Here are the filesystems I have in place:

/boot hda1
/swap hda2
/ hda3
/home hda5
/usr hda6
/usr/local hda7
/tmp hda8
/var hda9

I am still relatively new to linux, but have been working hard on the system, as it is providing domain control via samba, networking, and daily backups of data directories from other machines (win and mac) in our lab. As such, I need to get the system up and running again as quickly as possible.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
