After having successfully installed Ubuntu 9.04, when I try to boot into 8.04, it stops part way through saying the file system check died, and I have to press CTRL-D to continue. When it loads the login screen, it is in a low graphics mode and the mouse does not work.

Eventually I put everything into 9.04, but for now it would take too long to get that ready to use, but with 8.04 not booting properly, it is a real nuisance.

When you get to that prompt, run fsck over the disk, so fsck /dev/sda1
or sda2 or whichever partition your 8.04 install is on. It will ask you
some questions about how to proceed. Once this has run, reboot and it
should work.
