ubuntu doesnt appear to use this, directly at least. I'll check
further and see what i can find that may mimic this

ok, added that, interesting results.
i get this message :
* Checking all filesystems
fsck.ext3: No such file or dir while trying to oped /dev/hda2
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains and ext2
filesystem(and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might want to try running e2fsck with an alternate
e2fsck -b 8193 device
* fsck failed, please repair manually.
Then I can enter the root pw to 'repair', or hit control-D to continue the boot.
If I do the latter, it mounts the drive !!!!!!!!!!!
Now, am I reading this right, I assume that the second part of the
message is due to the first part, "No such file or dir while trying to
oped /dev/hda2", and there's nothing wrong with the disk.
e2fsck shows no problem with the disk after the boot.
Q : how does one find the where the alternate superblocks are ?
Would anybody like to offer a reason/guess why it won't mount
normally, but will after failing the pass2 ?
