	That was your second error.
	As I learned it:
	On anything other than a clean shutdown, you will need to fsck
everything that was mounted at the time of the crash.  (Remember to
get the stuff that's "noauto" in fstab.)
	Run fsck on each partitions.  Repeat until it reports no
errors.  (Not "MARKED CLEAN" but not errors.
