Running chkdsk /F to fix disk problems

I'm using SystemSuite on a P2 running XP Home which recently threw up a problem and asked me to run "chkdsk /f" I can run chkdsk from start/run....but it won't do any fixing. Any hints how I go about doing this? Do I need to start the PC from the XP CD-ROM (in which case how do I force the PC to start from the CD-ROM?)

Thanks,

Mark

That happens to me when i use my Norton System Works,What i normally do is click on "my computer" then right click on my drive i want to check and select properties,Then click on Tools and then click "error checkin" and then tick autamaticlly "fix file system errors and also tick "scan for and detect bad clusters.When you click ok you should get a message sayin the pc will have to resart for the checks to gain access to your disk
Hope this helps and you can understand me.
