Fedora 13 Live CD and HDD install won't boot anymore


I installed a copy of Fedora 13 onto my HDD yesterday and everything went fine until, for some reason, it stopped working. (Got stuck at the white bar while booting up). Well, I wasn't sure what the problem was so I decided to run the live CD again (which *is* a good CD, unless it somehow managed to destroy itself since yesterday) and I get "Could not mount root filesystem," sleeping forever.

Hm.

I haven't changed any of the hardware, and all the connections seem to still be good, so, I dunno... Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks in advance for any input.

:UPDATE:
Now my computer simply displays a list of repeating errors, each one like:
Quote:
ata1.00: failed commnad: read DMA
(...)
ata1.00: [ABRT]
or something like that. Urgh... I have no idea what's going on...

Sounds like some issue with the controller or hard drive / cdrom drive.
