> What error message from where suggests a file/disk problem?

Windows won't boot: it'll hang just before login on a black screen
with a cursor, and I can't mount the ntfs partitions under Linux
unless I force it. chkdisk reported no errors at first but chkdisk /R
reported fixing "some errors" but I didn't catch any more information
than that I'm afraid. I'll download ultimate boot cd and see if any of
its diagnostic utilities will help.
