Quesstion on "remote password for maintenance"

I have a remote "centos 5" box that has no errors on screen,
has nothing saying anything is wrong, however at boot it
says "give remote password for maintenance".

I had my remote person login and issue "e2fsck -y /dev/sda1 and
/dev/sda3" for my
two partitions and reboot and it comes back with the same prompt.

What maintenace is it wanting????

Thanks,

jerry
