    The first step would be to let use know which distribution of Linux you are using as there are hundreds of different distributions. If you don't know, go to the directory /etc and look for a file named release or issue and open it. It will tell you.
    What were you doing immediately prior to this problem? You may have an incorrect menu in your boot file. Linux has several different bootloaders which is one reason we need to know your distriubtion. Were you using Linux to boot both Linux and windows? Did you have your dual-boot working or was this a new installation?
