Should I truncate an inode?

My redhat 9 system just crashed, when I reboot it says:

/: Inode 11862443 is too big.

then prompts me for a root password for maintenance, I type it in and type fsck, which it says is fsck 1.32 and e2fsck 1.32. Then it says that "Inode 11862443 is too big" and asks if I want to truncate it. Should I? If not then how else should I fix the problem. I have the Redhat install disks so I could attempt a rescue, I also have Knoppix and a blank hard drive that could be used, any suggestions would be appreciated.
