What size is your hd0s2 partition?

Try "settrans -a ..." which will probably show more error messages.

No, it means it started up correctly so far and found the disk to be
unclean.  It's a warning, and it falls back to read only mode because of
that.  Remove the translator ("settrans -afg /linux") and then do

e2fsck /dev/hd0s2

and everything will be ok.  Or do "fsysopts /linux -w" to make it writeable
and continue at your own risk :)
