It appears that I have one or more bad blocks on my root files system on
one of my machines running whitebox 3.0.
When I run e2fsck /dev/hda5, I get a warning that it is very dangerous
to run e2fsck on a mounted file system.
However, I don't believe it's possible to unmount /.
Is there a safe way to bring the system up so that I can run e2fsck on
