An error occurred during the file system check. Something about "Seed =
dd" [FAILED] and it cannot "Unlink". It drops me to a command line =
dev/hdal contains a file system with errors
/dev/hdal; UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY
Give root password for maintenance _
What should I do to correct (or diagnoise)the problem?

This is bad. You have a corrupt filesystem. You may or may not be able to
fix this. Enter the root password and the system will go into single user
mode. From there you will want to run fschk on the problem file system
(/dev/hda1). In general, if fsck suggests a corrective action, do it.
At the prompt try this:
Also consult the man pages for fsck and e2fsck.
Now as to why this happened, there are two likely reasons:
1. The hard disk has failed.
2. You did something improper like turning the machine off without shutting
it down first.
Anybody else experienced with filesystem repair?
