Unhappy Please HELP!!!!!! ARRRR Kernel Panic

Hi, i have a small, no.....massive problem.
Scenario: Picture the scene were you have to do lost of work on your only day off to get an assignment in in a few days. Then out of nowere you installation of Redhat 8.0(on a redhat 8/win98 dual boot) suddenly hard locks. Then you are forced to hit the reset button. Low and behold you are presented with the following.

Loading ext3 module
Mouting/proc filesystem
Creating block devices
Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
EXT3-fs error (device ide2(33,8)):ext3_check_descriptors:Block bitmap for group 128 not in group (block 1946254407)!
EXT3-fs: group descriptors curropted!
mount:error 22 mounting ext3
pivoroot:pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed:2
unmount/initrd/proc failed:2
Freeing unused kernal memory:172k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel

now i am very much a newbie, and all i cant tell you is that i am running kernel 2.4.18-26.8.0

I desperatly need your expertise. Thanks in advance.

Be nice :)
