In all likelihood, this is because the LNX-BBC will have mounted all
of the filesystems it could find, read-only, under /mnt/ro.  umount
/dev/hda2 won't work because the BBC uses devfs.  Probably the OP
followed your advice to check the output of mount and successfully got
it umounted before running fsck.ext2, however.
