Check http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/Version_Status, if it's not mentioned there it isn't planned yet. You are free to contribute a chkdsk/autochk of course.

Isn't that a 16-bit app, and thus won't work on ROS?

Does it build in your environment out of the box?
If yes, what is your build environment? Do you build it inside ReactOS? Or do you have some crosscompile setup?

I have no idea. And as Mike said, it could be fat16.

He was talking about a 16bit application. Then I thought it's a binary packed in a zip.
But it is a source package. So it could be built for 32bits.
But of course if it is the case that it only supports fat16 then it's less usefull.
But that's the question whether it supports also fat32.

I found a win32 disk editor and data recovery tool (FAT12/16/32):

(at least one problem remains, the website isn't available anymore ...)

FreeDOS's chkdsk works fine for me... I run FreeDOS on an old Pentium 120. The hard disk is formated FAT32, so the chkdsk has no problems with at least FAT12 (floppy disks usually) and FAT32 (my hard disk :p) it seems. It's logical to assume that it works for FAT16 partitions, but I have none to test.

Do you also run FreeDOS' chkdsk on ReactOS?
If yes how did you build (compile) it?

Like I said in other posts, there is a port of dosfsck in rosapps that mostly works, but needs some real world testing. Until there is a proper replacement written, please try dosfsck.

There seems to be none in 0.2.8.
Will it be available in 0.2.8.1?

No, I'm not aware of rosapps.
I just downloaded the Iso Image from http://www.reactos.org/xhtml/en/download.html .
