Description of problem:
After upgrading to Kernel 2.4.7-2.9 and upgrading all the necessary 
packages, the boot hangs at the filesystem check, explaining an 
inconsistancy in the superblock.  After going into single user, I can 
mount the filesystems in question, and they are functional.  After running 
e2fsck on them, it warns that the superblock could be damaged, and asks if 
I'd like to continue.  If I continue, it shows up clean, yet will never 
mark the disk as clean.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):e2fsprogs-
1.23-1, e2fsprogs-devel-1.23-1

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Redhat 7.1 for alpha on AlphaStation 500
2.Upgrade required packages for kernel update.
3. Upon reboot, system will hang at filesystem check

Must be something in older scripts. For an older installation might be
circumvented by mounting the disk read-only before rebooting?

Should in any case be fixed in newer versions, closing the bug-report.
