That looks like you either have a physically bad hard disk, or directory/inode 
corruption in the entry needed to load fsck.  Try running 'dmesg' and look for 
error messages about accessing the disk device.  If the disk is physically OK, 
you might be able to run fsck from the rescue dvd boot.  In any case, if you 
were able to copy off any important data, you might be better off to re-install 
(and perhaps move to 5.x).
