Distribution: Slackware (mainly) and then a lot of others...
Why is the /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2 _both_ ntfs? Should'nt the linux installation be ext3 or ext4?
Run 'fdisk /dev/hda' and then press 'p' and see what kind of partitions you have.
For some reasons it looks like the partition was not formatted properly.
As far as a way out is concerned I would say reinstall linux again. Since linux never booted up there should be no data loss.
Pay a bit more attention to formatting the disc the next time you install.
Hope this helps.
