So let me get this straight, If I want to check my file system for errors
there is no problems, but if I want to fix any errors found I have to
reboot via a boot disk, and then e2fsck the now unmounted drive ?

If true (makes sense since it is a multitasking environment), then this is
not so good for my internet gateway, which may have some corruption.
But hey no use winging about it.

Cheers Mof.
