big problem with RH8 booting...plz help

Hey all. I have a huge problem with my RH8 server. I installed the stupid kernel updates along with some other updates through the "up2date" program, then I rebooted and now my system is totally fu#$ed.

When I blows through with about 15 errors similar to
/var/log/wtmp : no such file or directory....

I says that there is no such file or directory with a lot of /var files

Then it proceeds to hang on "starting system logger" for about 5 minutes, then finally it gives me a text login which has 8 bash errors after I login. I cannot access some directories also...such as usr/local/ says it does not exist.

I have one hard drive in the system.

I rebooted again to the rescue cd and ran fsck /dev/hda1...through 7 and it found a lot of errors and asked to fix them. I said yes....rebooted and I get the same damn thing.

Is there any hope? or did linux just poop out on me for no reason?

Please help as soon as you can.

Thanks in advance
