I think you forgot to compile the right file system in your kernel. Are you using reiser or ext3?

Well, filesystems tend to screw up when the computer is improperly shut down. You could have "rescued" it by using a boot disk (heck, even DemoLinux would do) and running fsck on your ext2 partition(s).
