[vox-tech] / has reached maximal mount count



Hi All,

Newbie question, first posting to lugod, 
please be kind:

Sometimes during boot of my RH Linux 7.0 system there
is a message like so:

Jul  6 09:44:17 linux1 fsck: / has reached maximal
mount count, check forced. 

It happened today for all partitions except /var. 
Please see below for extract of /var/log/boot_log
after grepping for today's date and ' fsck:'

This happened at least one other time during the last
month.  Today I did a full shutdown and a fresh start,
which resulted in a clean fsck as shown below.

The only possible related cause, that I can think of,
was a problem yesterday with doing 'shutdown -r now'. 
After issuing this command yesterday, the restart
burped twice after it had shut down and before
restarting.  I had to press keys twice, I think,
before the restart would continue.  

(I don't remember the exact details of the burp, but
will try a restart again later and take notes.)  I do
remember that a similar burp occurred one other time I
did a restart.

1.  What is going on here?

2.  Am I in trouble?  What do I need to research and
fix?

3.  I have several good books (from a newbie pov) that
do not address this situation.  Can you point me at
something more helpful?
