    is it running fsck when it reboots? or is it hanging way before that?

    you might need a good knoppix cd, or something else that you can boot from to atleast get a loaded kernel so you can un-bork that hard drive.

    File system errors are troubling, especially when they come from botched shutdowns or powerfailures. It's not so bad when the inodes are buried in a music file, but when they botch up necessary kernel level things, it gets dicey.
