Repair table failed. Please run repair table.

One of the tables of my MediaWiki installation crashed. When I tried to repair it, I got this less-than-helpful error message. So did the mysqlcheck utility when I SSHed to the server. However, the command has extra options that can be used to repair high levels of corruptions, such as when the MYI is missing.
