[PLUG] rofs rofl

Please forgive me... I have committed the sin of trying to update 
Ubuntu.  It downloads and unpacks, then the errors start.

Googling seems to point to a possible read-only issue, which might also 
explain why Firefox won't let me dl anything (saves to /tmp) and my 
external usb drive won't mount.

`mount' indicates [rw, errors: read only] for the system partition.
when I reboot, it comes up with errors, which I fsck and reboot.  No 
complaints til I'm already in the system.
