Linux doesn' boot due to lack of hard disk space
 
Hi,
I ran out of hard-disk space and the next time I tried to boot into RH9, it shows this:
----------------------------------------------
Checking root filesystem
WARNING: Your /etc/fstab does not contain the fsck passno field. I will kludge around the things for you, but you should fix your /etc/fstab file as soon as you can.

/:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

fsck.ext2: Is a directory while trying to open / [FAILED]

***An error occured during the filesystem 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 gave the root password and tried the following command at the Repair filesystem prompt:

(Repair filesystem) 1 # fsck

It shows:

fsck 1.32 (09-Nov-2002)
WARNING: Your /etc/fstab does not contain the fsck passno field. I will kludge around the things for you, but you should fix your /etc/fstab file as soon as you can.

And it just shows me another prompt like this:
(Repair filesystem) 2 #
----------------------------------------------
I also tried:

e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda2

It shows:

/boot was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information

/boot: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
/boot: 47/24576 files (2.1% non-contiguous), 17421/98248 blocks
(Repair filesystem) 11 #
----------------------------------------------

But when I try to re-boot into RH9, same story gets repeated again. I know I posted this issue in NewBie forum, but couldn' find help..so am trying my luck here again. Plz help if anyone has some insight into this problem. Thanks.
