i get this when i'm trying to boot up my ubuntu-server 10.04:

fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
/dev/sdb1: rent, 393604/4685824 files, 9517114/18738176 block

I can boot up fedro live cd and chroot into the ubuntu-server 10.04 install. The error arose when I go a sudden power interuption.

I don't have a solution, but you are not alone. Had this happen to me today. One total reinstall so far -- not good. Seems to be related to power management according to http://superuser.com/questions/112848/ubuntu-nbr-karmic-boot-freezes-at-fsck-from-util-linux-ng-2-16

Actually booted Knoppix and removed reference to USB drive (not powered on) in /etc/fstab and things worked again.
