    error booting up


    when i boot it up i get this error "fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ROOT /dev/ROOT: The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 file system (and not swap or ufs or something else)the the superblock is corrupt amd you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>" so i type the code "e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda1" and i get an error when i try to reboot.

    Make sure you edited your /etc/fstab properly and replaced /dev/ROOT with the root partition e.g. /dev/hda3 and also given it the proper filesystem type.
