Error in partition. Unexpected Inconsistency, won't let me run fsck!


A couple nights ago one of my boxes froze up and I had to cut off the power supply. When restarted I got the dreaded message I just knew I was going to see. There were errors found in the first partition. It automatically tries to fixed it but about 90% through I get this error:

UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: Run fsck Manually

It then ask me to enter root password to enter system maintence.
When I enter the root password I get:
Bash id: command not found
Rebooting

Then it reboots. I can't do anything else this way so I'm assuming I need to run fsck on the slack cd. But I must be running something wrong.

When I run something like:
fsck -p hdb1

All it does is print out the commands.
I also tried e2fsk but same result. I'm almost sure I used ext. 2 filesystem.
What do I need to do to fix this? Thanks for your time.

i think you must run " e2fsck /dev/hdb1 "
after booting from cd.

How did I not see that? Brain fart I guess.
Anyways, thanks for your help, back up and running now.
