My system on longer boots...
My system has stopped booting!!! Can someone please help me get it up and running again.
Here is the text at boot up:
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3
Loading jbd module
Jouralled Block Device driver loaded
Loading ext3 module
Mounting /proc filesystem
Creating block device
Creating root device
mkrootdev: label / not found
Mounting root filesystem

pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2

It sounds like your /etc/fstab is using labels rather than the actual devices and the label doesn't correspond to the correct partition.
Boot in rescue mode, mount your / partition and edit /etc/fstab to use partitions rather than labels and it will probably boot then.

When I try to enter Rescue Mode I get the following message:
/dev/sda1 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 82 Linux swap
I would like to be able to recover my files. Any help would be gratefully accepted.
Is /dev/sda2 perhaps something other than ext3, maybe reiserfs or ext2?
I have tried to mount it as ext2 but I get the same error.
Am I using the mount command correctly?
