I keep on getting these errors on my system (kernel 2.0.30, libc 5.3.12):

<2>EXT2-fs error (device 03:02): ext2_readdir: directory #2 contains a
hole at offset 7168
<2>EXT2-fs error (device 03:02): ext2_find_entry: directory #2 contains a
hole at offset 7168

I tried booting with the bootdisk and did the following:
e2fsck /dev/hda2 - it somewhat fixed the errors
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt
ls /mnt
umount /mnt
e2fsck /dev/hda2 - it sees the partition as unclean
and forced a filesystem check

I had to do the same thing over and over and it doesn't get fixed. :(

Any ideas? Thanks very much for any help.
