You have to tell fsck which partition to check, it doesn't know. See 'man fsck'. And you cannot fsck a mounted partition anyway, you'd have to do so from a recovery disk or somesuch.

you must boot into single user mode,

then run fdisk -l, this will give you a list of your disks, then fsck the disk... they could be like /dev/sda or /dev/hda.

the reason you dont see anything is because it appears the fs is readonly can you confirm?

If that would be the case then I would not be able to write to any file or create new files on the fs, but I can easily do that.

But still fsck in single user mode returns same result (fsck version) as mentioned in my previous msg.

LILO Smilie I thought RHEL4 used GRUB?
Anyhow, your /etc/fstab has all the file systems that are mounted at boot time. When you boot in to single user mode:
root@linux # fsck /dev/sda1

Note: /dev/sda1 is an example. Your boot disk might be different.

nitin I was thinking the same thing but he is probably running Red Hat Linux 4 and not RHEL4

This is surely RHEL 4 and its customized.

Ok, I tried fsck, but the problem still persists.

Kindly help,
