I know, however it isn't fixing the first sector, it
uses the backup(already repaired it), and never at any
point does it fix the original. As a result, I can't
mount it and get it to boot up.. my /var is on this
drive. and is rather important. repeatedly running
fsck, it just asks to use the backup at sector 32. I
can't seem to find any other software to replace it or
edit it. I've read a fair amount of man pages now.
