Is there any way I can check for bad blocks on a fat partition, if I try fsck on a fat partition
I get an error.....

[root at ringo /root]# fsck -C /dev/hda2
Parallelizing fsck version 1.19 (13-Jul-2000)
fsck: fsck.vfat: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.vfat for /dev/hda2
[root at ringo /root]# 

Is there a fat version of fsck?
