ext2_fs error

I recently installed RH 8.0. Upon restart, everything looks fine until I get the following:

ext2_fs error (device ide0(3,2)): ext2_check_page: bad entry in directory #2: unaligned directory entry

pivotroot: pivot-root(/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2

kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

Where do I begin? I've already attempted reinstalling once to no avail. I checked my installation media (CD), and they passed the test.
