Sounds like the entries for /etc/fstab are wrong. You should be able to open a maintainance shell (I can see it asking) and check /dev/ for which hard drives you have (and what they are mounted as) and see if you can get it mounted to get to to /etc/fstab and fix the contence.

Erm, you shouldn't really be asking for people to look at your server (very insecure way of doing things). Anyways, when you enter maintainance mode, do "cat /etc/fstab" and post the output to that here.
