Question repair /mnt/sysimage

hey all how is it going? I was wondering , what is the best way to repair a file sys. I am trying to repir my sysimage file. I am using the linux rescue cd, logged in as SH-2.05B#. However, when I try to unmount /mnt/sysimage. I reveice an message that says, device or file is busy. How can i unount this file and use e2fsck -f to do a full syscheck? Aslo what is the best way to backup my /mnt/sysimage and restore it to my boot partition?

I hope that this makes sense, t
hanks Jason.

Before unmounting, try running:

# fuser -km /mnt/sysimage

That should kill any processes accessing the filesystem and allow you to unmount.
