It looks like you're trying to run fsck on a read/write filesystem. You might try booting into single-user mode, passing the kernel command-line ro s (ro for read-only, s for single-user). You should then be able to check the filesystem manually using fsck.

Failing that, you will need to boot from a rescue disk (so that the filesystem's completely unused) and run fsck from there.

Hope that helps,

a linux native file system is only read/write?

i get the same difficalty in single user mode

i got this problem just by shutting down, and booting into M$win2k

also for some reason after 10 or 15 trys i got somewhere i notice that they were in a users opera cache, i did the same exact thing each time too...
the odd thing is the last this happened in found them in the same spot, but did it on the first time. could this problem have something to do with opera it self
now i would like to know, is there a way i can evade this in the future
