Hi :)

I have SGI XFS installed on my computers here;
and for some reason, I've had two of my machines
just stop booting (a bit of a coincidence). Both
of them are on UPS, so i'd suspect that I did
something wrong or that the machines got badly
hacked into.

I'd appreciate *any* help that I could get. Is there
some kind of link that tells me the various steps
to go through for restoring my filesystems?
(Eric.. thanks for helping me out)

This of course assumes that my computer didnt
get hacked into.. :) and no one deleted all my
files, partitions and everything..:)

Here are the error messages I get. (i just typed
these in)
