If you still have OS 9...

There does seem to be more to fixing Apple's HFS drives than fsck. Rob's case of a disappearing drive/partition which passes fsck checks is not rare, unfortunately. However, in the cases that I know of, the problem was fixed by simply rebooting into OS 9 and then back to OS X! In other words, it is not a BSD filesystem/fsck problem (BSD doesn't "lose" drives). Rather, there appears to be some legacy OS 9 voodoo going on that OS X unfortunately doesn't know about yet...
