messed up file system

fsck finds uncorrectable errors in my / system (short read
during inode scan) and some files seem to be missing.  The
system seems to boot ok and everything I normally use seems
to work.  Is there anything I can do short of re-installing?
I'm running Redhat 4.0 (with some upgrades) and kernel 2.0.30.

I presume the missing files might be at /lost+found
But the real problem is restoring file system integrity.

AFAIK fsck is the only way to restores the file system, just
leaving in /lost+found what cannot be repaired. If fsck still
complains you may call it interactively and correct some errors
by hand.
