Usually, another reboot fixes the problem, yes. However, this last time was due to 
some /etc/fstab error, don't have the exact error since the folks at the NOC couldn't 
remember it, I finally got it fixed, not sure how, but the idents wern't in fstab...I 
added them back and it worked for some reason.

I suspect it might drop into single user mode to fsck...but from my experiences with 
the boxes I have here, it does that on a normal boot if it needs to, not single user...
