I haven't had any success trying that "repair" stuff in Yast. Now, I
don't even bother with any of it.

Boot into a rescue system from the installation CD or DVD. None of your
physical partitions will be mounted, so you can safely attempt repairs.
You have a problem with the reiserfs file system on /dev/hda2, so run this:

reiserfsck --check

This won't do anything, but it should give you some instructions. If it
does, follow them. Otherwise, try this:

reiserfsck --fix-fixable
