Hi Rob, the latest versions of Red Hat Linux 7.2 and 7.3 offer a
a new file system they call ext3 which is not as bad about a power down
PC crash. My linux comes right back up.

        You seem to have the older ext2 file system which is sometimes
damaged by a PC power failure. I gather as your linux loads it gets to
mounting the file system and errors out. Usually it asks you if you want
to run software to rebuild the file system. When this happens tell it to
go ahead. This often works.
