That is an interactive prompt. You are supposed to enter Y or N
because a _change_ to the file system has to be authorized by
the operator.

You can, however, use

	# fsck -yf /usr

to automatically answer "YES", but be sure to _know_ what this
will cause! See "man fsck" for details.

The reason: fsck can automatically repair some kinds of file
system defects. Some "bigger" defects need more changes to the
file system, this _could_ damage files, and in ultra-worst case,
cause data loss. That's why the operator is _prompted_ to make
a decision. In some very exceptional cases it might be better
to _not_ apply the modification and relapse to forensic tools
in the first place. This will probably not required in your
case. :-)

Use a memtest-CD to make sure. You can test all RAM bars separately
_and_ in the desired combination.
