    Smoothwall Firewall down help!

    After a power outage our smoothwall corporate firewall box won't load up - this is the link between admin and curriculum so is causing major problems.

    Get dev/hardisk3 contains a file system with errors - check forced.
    then get unexpected inconsistency and says run fsck manually - tried that but no joy.
    Not really too sure about linux commands.
    Is there anything i can do to repair or do i have to reinstall and try and remember configuration?
    How do i reinstall - get a cd and boot from usb cd drive as there is no cd drive built in?
    any advice appreciated,
    Mark

    Sounds like your disk is deceased - power surges have a tendency to do this!

    Support may be able to help rescue backups if you've not taken one recently.
