    fsck

    This may be a total noob question, but how do I run fsck?

    Whenever I try, even with the xwindows shut down, I'm warned that there is something mounted, and running fsck with anything mounted can cause damage.

    How do I do it?

    you need to unmount partition first. the easiest will be to boot a live cd and then to check your hard drive.

    There is no need to do a check if not warned though (generally).

    Have you tried running it with the Live CD?

    Thanks for the tips, people. I'll have a try at the live CD a little later.
