ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=178356225, block=356712450

hm, are there device related messages in the syslog? "unable to read inode block" sounds like general i/o errors to me.

e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)

can you try a more current version? e2fsprogs.sf.net is at v1.39

It seems like the partition table is corrupted and not the superblock, and
if so, what would be the right way of going about it?!

sorry to repeat myself, but at first I'd make sure that there are no device errors. if this can be ruled out: do you have spare 250GB to backup you (corrupt) fs? if yes - please do, then use the current fsck to try to repair the fs.
