[SATLUG] CHKDSK for Fedora?

Hello,

I haven't posted much since ya'll always seem to answer my questions before
I ask but my friend and I were hoping for some help with a particular
issue.

We have a hard drive with WinXP and Fedora 12 partitions loading from grub.
We were wondering if there is an equivalent to CHKDSK that can be initiated
from Fedora so that the scan can run before loading an OS, much the way
CHKDSK runs on a restart?  We understand fsck is supposed to do this but
we're not able to figure out the correct command.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
