For some reason the posts are coming up out of order for me, but  
someone said likely fsck is at a prompt waiting for help;  fsck will  
ask for operator intervention if there are certain problems found- or  
it exits and says "rerun me with "these" options please".  It's not  
the end of the world but you do need to tell it what to do else it  
will happily sit forever.

You do need a null modem cable and then just hyperterm on the PC; for  
a Mac laptop it works best to buy a keyspan usb-serial adapter and to  
put a null modem adapter onto that.
