  If you're typing fsck and nothing is happening then perhaps you need the 
full path to fsck (/sbin/fsck probably).  Perhaps you need to use e2fsck 
(or /sbin/e2fsck).  You'll need to give the partition to check as an 
argument but that should be all that is required.

  You can add the -y option so that ever question (such as fixing inodes) 
is answered with YES but that assumes that you really do want to answer 
them all YES.

  Hope that helps,
