I have just had the same problem, but windows would not boot either. After shuffling around my memory, I found a memory slot to be faulty.
If I placed memory in the faulty slot, the BIOS would not load. If I used memory in the faulty slot, and memory in any good slot, I got the above error. If I didn't use the faulty slot, then everything fine (apart from damaged hardware)
After longer hours of downloading, but it is ok..made the cd and
giving the following message at final boot
md: autorun DONE
RAMDISK: Couldnīt find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
VFS: Cannot open root divice <NULL> or unknown-block(3,2)
Please append a correct root= boot option
Kernel panic not syncing:
VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,2)
