Need help with fsck

First of all Hi everyone!.My problem is, i am running redhat 7.1 on an old pentium2. When i boot everything looks fine untill it does the root filesystem check,it get's to about 58% then i get:

Inode 170465 has Imagic flag set

(i.e., without -a or -p options)

*** an error occured during 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 for normal startup)

I did not even change anything with the system this problem just happened 2 day's after installing it.

I would appreciate any help on what to do.

Have you tried doing a manual fsck on that partition?
