ie how do I use the vrepair facility and check the state of the sys volume
(I normally have to dismount a volume to check it and of course can't do that for sys)
You just can't check a volume with Vrepair without dismounting it.

If you copy vrepair.nlm and and any name space nlms (i.e. v_long.nlm) to a floppy and then type 'ADD SEARCH A:' you should then be able to dismount the SYS volume and run vrepair from the floppy.
