    i have slightly screwed filesystem
    it's ext2 and it was not cleanly unmounted once. now it chks it ever time i boot. is there any way of fixing it short of reinstallation (which i figured out my self) any tools?

    Could you do a dumpe2fs on that partition and post the superblock data (i.e. all the data before the first empty line) back here? It just might reveal something.
