Just boot from the live CD and open a root session.
I'd suggest running "fdisk -l" to verify that it sees
your disk(s) and partitions.

Next run "fsck /dev/<device>" replacing the <device>
with the device name from "fdisk -l".

You may have to prefix each command with "sudo" because of the way Ubuntu is setup.
