What I would probably start with is boot to run level one, and run "rpm -Va | less". It may appear to sit there doing nothings, because this command only produces an output if it finds a mismatch. If you want to see what it is doing, you can add a -v to the command. (rpm -Va -v | less) But this produces a LOT of output, and makes it harder to spot bad files. If it finds a lot of bad files, it is probably going to be faster to re-install and update. You should consider using ext3 file systems directly on disk partitions instead of using the default LVM.
