	Hi;

	Your fstab looks well formed. However, I dont see an entry for
/home in it. Is it possible that your partitions have label names, and
that really /, /mnt/data, and /mnt/usnstable are being fscked, but 
the output refers to the label name? (after all /dev/hda1 is usually
root, but later things got changed around ?) Just a guess.

dumpe2fs /dev/hdaX | more

	Will show you the label name on the first line, I think.
