Hi all.
After a recent crash due to root brain damage, the kernel panicked 
because of fs corruption when trying to write to /home, which lives 
on a LFS partition. Since fsck_lfs cannot write to the disk, what is 
the way out of such a situation? I had plenty of space on /usr/pkg, 
so I could backup /home and do a "reformat and reinstall", but that 
feels crude. Any hints? (This is -current on macppc.)
