I think the main reason to answer know would be if you wanted to experiment with the disk as an unmounted devvice to try and figure out some information - maybe about what went wrong or something - before fsck cleaned things up. But, in usual practice, you may just want to use the -y switch. ////jerry > > Thoughts? > > -- > Steve Coile _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
