i recently updated to newest kernel (2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.) everything seemed ok until day before yesterday i got on for just a few minutes before going to work and then shut down unit. i came back in a few minutes and it wasnt shut down and there were a bunch of error messages. i didnt have time to fool with it and it seemed locked up anyway so i just did a hard reset. when i got back on later that night the os didnt load. keep getting VFS: can't find ext3 filesystem message, couple different errors, and kernel panic, which locks up unit. i've tried for several hours now to at least salvage my data on the drive figuring i can just re-install os, but nothing works. currently, as im typing, im using a knoppix cd to try and correct, but im not hopeful. this same thing happened just a couple weeks ago and i just cut my losses and re-installed. i dont mind re-installing but dont want to lose data again. im certainly not an expert at linux, just started using fc 5 about a year ago and love it (not having to worry about viruses, spyware, etc.) all attempts so far to access partition result in bad superblock errors, etc....any tips?
