Don't panic. And "fsck" is just a "FileSystem ChecK". Sorta like Scandisk
in Dos/windows. It's a good thing. It'll make sure you don't have files
that weren't deleted or grown properly etc.
Linux checks your disks every boot, and thinks "Hmm. They haven't been
checked lately". It's a good thing. Trust me.
Do you have a problem with American Mulitnationals forcing the arrest of a
Norwegian 16 year old, because he made them look like fools by cracking
DVD encryption, so he could play his own DVDs, and then sharing his DVD
player ? Sign the petition: http://linuxguiden.linpro.no/protesteng.php
