    two commands

    fsck.ext3 and fsck.ext2

    so if your boot partition is on /dev/hda3 then simply

    umount /dev/hda3
    fsck.ext2 /dev/hda3

    if your root is on /dev/hda3 then

    reboot
    boot with live cd in
    fsck.ext3 /dev/hda3

    so whatever drive you use, just use the fsck that corresponds with its file system, if its your root with problems use a live cd, if its your boot then umount the boot and run the command

    Code:
    # fsck.ext2 /dev/hda1
    e2fsck 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)
    /dev/hda1: clean, 44/10040 files, 10907/40128 blocks
    this is my boot, what does it mean?

    it means that your filesystem is ok , maybe your should check your other partitions for inconsistancies?
