You should be able to boot using the installation disk.

What partition is your / partition on? And what partition is your /boot partition (it's possible it's on the same as /)? What file system are your partitions? (e.g. reiserfs, ext3...)

Yes they are both on the same partition,and I believe that file system is ext2 the other two are a ext2 and swap.
When I run e2fsck on my /,boot partition it says something like this Bad magic number in Superblock while trying to open /dev/hdc1 describe a correct ext2 filesystem.and something about it being corrupt.
