This is sort of working now ,but giving the following error;
#/boot : clean
/home:  clean
/dev/hda5 is mounted e2fsck cannot continue, aborting.

An error occurred during the file system check

Var now contains the correct sub directories, but I'm in 'Repair
Filesystem' mode, and if I try to run fsck - it says 'running on a
mounted filesystem make cause damage'
