Redhat 7.3 File System Integrity check /usr failed while booting up

RedHat 7.3 while booting up- file system integrity check is run /usr directory - once reach 95.0% the OS will be hang.
2 or 3 times restart sucessfully boot up, but within some hours the OS will be hanged.
If any one has any knowldge of this, I would be very greatfull.

There is a little lack of info to help trobleshoot this problem. Could you provide what filesystem type you are using (eg; ext3, Reiserfs, XFS etc) also, what is your partition structure, for instance do you have separate partitions for /usr /home etc.

$df -h

Also did anything unusual happen before this error eg missing files or corruptions of some sort?

First i thank to aikidoist....

My System partition and file system information as follows

/dev/hda2 6.7G 3.1G 3.3G 48% /
/dev/hda1 53M 4.6M 45M 9% /boot
none 124M 0 124M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3 6.7G 5.8G 661M 90% /usr
/dev/hda6 3.9G 618M 3.0G 17% /var

File System :
LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/usr /usr ext2 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/var /var ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

The machine goes for an indefinite sleep while working..
also after this when we reboot (by switching on the machine again) suring the file system checkes the machine again
sleeps indefintily when it reaches usr 95 %
Alwazys at the same point usr 95 %

waiting u r reply

Sorry for delay.....

Can you boot into your distro at all? If so, try in a console

e2fsck /dev/hda3
If not grab a live cd - and access your hard drive that way.
is it possible to backup your data to cd or another partition? if you have a spare partition you should copy it like so
cp -a /usr/* /path/to/spare/partition/
if so then it may be worth formatting to ext3.

For easy access to manual pages try this in konqueror
Simply type a # followed by the command you are interested in. Each to their own, but I would recommend upgrading to either ext3 or reiserfs. There are a few options to follow up. let me know if you need more specific info and I will see what I can do :-)
