Doug, thanks for the good ideas - I learned some things from your
considered response. I ended up finally reinstalling etch again.
I've now captured the pertinent part of the boot messages and will
copy below. Why does the filesystem check clean once and then come up
with errors the 2nd time? You mentioned that I should fix it manually
- Well, if I enter the root password at the prompt and try to run fsck
manually, it warns me about the damage I might due to the MOUNTED
filesystem. I mentioned in my earlier post that if I boot into
Knoppix and run fsck, it comes back CLEAN. So I can't seem to repair
it with Knoppix fsck, yet I get the error when I boot from my
/dev/hda1 - the second time in the fsck sequence. Can you shed any
light on this?
Here is the pertinent boot sequence:

What fsck command do you enter then in single-user? The filesystem
should only be mounted ro.
