Hang Up During Boot

Having a problem with new install of SuSe 7.2.

When booting up, it always hangs up at the same point. The last two lines on the bootup screen reads:

/dev/hda3 was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
/dev/haa3: I ================ /30.0%

I am a rank noobie with linux, so I have no idea what this means, or what to do about this. Is there a fix for this, or should I wipe and reinstall?

This is on a Tyan Tiger 133, dual P III Slot 1's.

Thanks for any help.

It means that you might have turned of the computer wrong.
you should use the halt command, because linux has to unmount the harddrives so they dont get borked.

you might have to re-install linux, if hda3 is your root partition...
