I do not belive so. There is only RO NTFS support in the Linux kernel. There is a RW NTFS wrapper around the W32 binaries, called Captive-ntfs (check this wiki:, and the captive home: but it does not include any fsck like repair tool. I guess you should boot from a 2k/XP CD or repair disk to console and run chkdsk manually (or put the hdd into an external usb2.0 rack and visit a friend using XP :-D ).

I hope I could helped.
