Why My ext3 file system changed to read only

Hello All

I am using fedora core 4.I installed rdesktop from source.After the installation,My system get hanged.So I rebooted my system.after that my filesystem changed to Repair Filesytem read only.

I tried using fsck to check the entire filesystem,but my root filesystem (mount for /) is changed to read only.but single use mode is working.I dont have a way other than reinstall.

Please help me to repair the file system

when your system freezes up the filesystem is not unmounted correctly.
this usually forces a check during the next boot up.
if that check detects errors in the filesystem then it will want you to login as single user and run a repair scan with fsck -r
if you still have problems after that then your hard drive may have gone bad.
at this point i'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with rdesktop.
