try to boot from something else(like livecd) and mount your boot partition. probably partition table & fs is corrupted.

Try booting through Linux DVD in "linux rescue" mode
> create a directory and mount your "/" partition in it and check for your "/etc/fstab" files
> see if all the partition entries are done properly
> reboot
