linux checks filesystems with a scandisk type program after a certain number
of reboots.  i think you can actually change the number of reboots with
ext2tune.  this is preventative maintenance.  think of it in a similar way to
how windows automatically scandisk and defrags its vfat partitions with the
task manager (or whatever the scheduled maintenance thing is called).

nope.  perfectly normal.  perfectly healthy.

read up on ext2 filesystem in any good mega book on linux (redhat secrets was
good for me).

nothing to fix.
