Hi Anders,

Boot into rescue mode and make a backup/image of the errant filesystem, first.
Umount the filesystem and run 'reiserfsck /dev/xxx' (same as running
'reiserfsck --check /dev/xxx') to perform a non-destructive examination. It
will report back what corruptions it finds and whether or not it believes
they can be fixed without rebuilding the tree. Note: If you invoke
'reiserfsck' without any parameters, a list of the options will be displayed.

Good night & good luck!
