How do you fsck the drive if you are booted off it? I don't get an option to boot without persistance.

I am rather surprised that firefox would run a shell to grep "netscape" from the process list.

comment How Do I interpret HDD S.M.A.R.T Results?
I should also add that the test results themselves are ambiguous. The overall test says that it failed, but the read error rate test, despite having a ridiculous value (100/100, worst, normalized) says "Ok".

comment How Do I interpret HDD S.M.A.R.T Results?
I've got a drive that is pretty much only failing the raw read error rate. The test only fails after the drive has been running a while, maybe 15 minutes; under Windows the symptom is that any drive access hangs the process, so I am using Ubuntu tools to determine what is wrong, but I'm at a loss as to what it is saying is wrong with the drive, since read error rate doesn't seem to indicate any kind of imminent failure of the drive - yet the drive definitely has problems!
