Are you mb runninh LVM over RAID? The fsck should be run on the mapper devices.

I don't use software RAID, but I would probably want to do this in rescue

it in maintenance mode again, I just need to figure out how to do an fsck

a raid system. When I try fsck /dev/md0 I got a bad super block error and
to run e2fsck -b 8192 which gives me the same error message.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I would be very cautious about interrupting an fsck. If you reboot your machine and press a key to bring up the grub menu, then type 'e' to edit that kernel entry, move to the kernel line, hit 'a' to append .. place an 's' at the end of the line and hit enter and then 'b' to boot you will
boot
without the root password into single user mode.
