fsck.ext2: Is a directory while trying to open /dev/mapper/root

fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
e2fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
fsck.ext2: Is a directory while trying to open /dev/mapper/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
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
mounnting device:/dev/ram.....

my /etc/fstab ---

sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

this build root is so fine working in linux-2.6.28 but i want to do with linux so that error exist

thanks for reply .........
