unexpected inconsistency Run fsck manually

Hi,
As I was rebooting a blade that runs RHEL 4.0 it keeps taking me
to the screen where it says "Unexpected inconsistency. Run fsck
manually or press Ctrl D to continue."
I hit Ctrl D and it just reboots to the same question.
I put in the pass word to go into maintenance and it asked
me if I wanted to repair files system 1. Soon as I entered yes then
just went blank.

is it repairing or is there something else I need to do?
This is urgent.Thanks!

also I went into maintenance mode and ran fsck and ti asked me to repair file system 1. I typed y and then the screen went blank. Isn't there a status screen and normally how long does a fsck take?

yes there is a staus screen (what version are you using?)
how long it takes depends on how big your filesystem is and the hardware you have.

Or
first check root : fsck -V -a /
then other filesystems: fsck -R -A -V -a

I will run this. But why is the status screen blank?

Also how do I put it in single user mode to run fsck?

Thanks a bunch.
