What do you mean with "to correct"? If you are refering to
disk devices to be checked and repaired by fsck, this only
works on unmounted or read-only devices (while unmounted is
the preferred state). But if "to correct" means how to mount
a read-only device in read/write mode, i. e., re-mount, then
the command "mount -uw <device>" (-u = update, -w = write)
is to be used.

Did I understand your question correctly? ;-)
