repair disk

hi guys,
i am also getting this problem ("")
while I am trying to boot the system:

"****an error occurred during the file system check
*****dropping u to a shell; the system will reboot
when u leave the shell
warning SELinux is active
disabling security enforcement for system recovery
RUN setenforce 1 to renable
Give root passwd for maintainance
or type ctl +D to reboot"

i suppossed i have a hard drive that has an error, so i tried a
fsck -A <device>
but it does not recognize the device .. it does not exist.

i also try fsck -p, but it says that maybe the superblock is corrupted :-(

do i need the rescue CD ?

what to do ?

is there any where a document to try reparing my HD ?

thanks in advance

Have you un-mounted the drive first? Running fsck on a mounted filesystem can usually result in disk/data corruption. So please do not do it. You have two choices
(a) Take down system to single user mode and unmout system

(b) Boot from the installation CD into rescue mode
