Whoops!  I also should have said that that's why the "fsck /dev/hdb2"
failed...hdb2 isn't an ext3 filesystem...it's the low level thing that
the LVM-based ext3 filesystem is built on.  You'd have to run the fsck
against the /dev/mapper/vgname-lvname device to bring LVM into play.
For example, the actual device making up my /usr filesystem is
/dev/mapper/sys_vg-usr_lv.  It's made up of chunks of the sys_vg volume
group.  Other chunks of the sys_vg volume group make up my /, /home,
/var and swap filesystems:
