Force fsck on headless servers and remote macs

I'm missing a step before #1. If your boot drive is not passing fsck, how do you get on it via ssh?

HFS+ Is a journaled filesystem, so if its anything like ext3 or reiserfs etc, it will replay the journal and act like nothing happend. There may still be errors that can be fixed doing an extensive check, one that if you don't add -f to fsck would skip.
