Error reading block x (Attempt to read block...) (fwd)

 A Centos 5 64-bit server reflected some SCSI kernel errors in the logs, so I 
opted to reboot, only to be prompted to perform a manual fsck, that an 
automatic fsck wouldn't be permitted. 

As a result, the fsck is taking a long time, as I have to babysit the server 
for every bad block that is reported and needs a forced rewrite. 

The exact error is "Error reading block x (Attempt to read block from 
filesystem resulted in short read) while doing inode scan.   Ignore error(y)? 

Force rewrite(y)?" 

I say yes to both. 

Could I safely get away with booting from a CentOS 5 CD and performing a fsck 
with automatic system fixing to speed up the process, or do I need to be 
patient and just keep manually selecting Y for as long as it takes?
