You are flying blind if you don't have some basic newbie books. Linx For Dummies isn't a bad starting point. Essentially, Linux/Unix has all sorts of built in disk utilities that do about anything you need except insert floppies and buy new hard drives for you.

But, since this ain't Windows, you gotta get specific -- both in your questions and in the commands you provide the computer/OS.  Start with the book, and you will soon know what the fsck is going on :-)
