Unhappy Error after upgrade from FC3 to FC4 with yum

After upgrading from FC3 to FC4 then rebooting the machine. It came out such an error message.

Can anybody help me how to solve it. I got data in this machine. Please don't spoil it. It' URGENT!!!

Here's the error message :

Checking root filesystem
WARNING : couldn't open /etc/fstab : Permission denied
fsck.ext2 : Is a directory while trying to open / [FAILED]

*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** When you leave the shell.
*** Warning -- SELinux is active
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery.
*** Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.

Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue) :
<< after I key-in my root password >>
(Repair filesystem)1#

Thank you in advance and appreciate those who helps.

While I don't know exactly what is wrong with your machine, it does sound similar to a problem from a few days ago. Here is that thread...

Not the exact same problem, but it may give you an idea of where to go from where you are at.

Sorry I can't be of any more help.
