    Did you use a update or something?

    Or probably not mounted correctly

    Looks like the system might be configured for RAID-type disks or for some kind of network storage. I'm not familiar with this.

    What is in your /etc/fstab?

    Yep, it looks like some kind of RAID configuration. I dont know how such things work, but you could try changing references to '/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00' in fstab to /dev/hdaN. You'd have to change entries for both the / and swap partitions.

    Or if it's working and you can live with it, then dont touch it.
