I'm using Dapper (6.06 LTS) on a Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 laptop. 
 I've encountered a failure to boot up.  The failure occurs at "mounting 
root filesystems."  The system diverts to the built-in shell "ash" after 
the messages listed below are displayed:

Is there any way to recover from this failure without reinstalling Kubuntu?


-------------------------

   Booting 'Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-23-386'

root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel  /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-23-386 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splash
   [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1c00, size=0x15774d]
initrd  /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-23-386
   [Linux-initrd @ 0xb81c000, 0x673bf7 bytes]
savedefault
boot
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
mount: Mounting /dev/hda1 on /root failed: No such device
mount: Mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: No such file or 
directory
mount: Mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: Mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesytem doesn't have /sbin/init

BusyBox v1.01 (Debian 1:1.01-4ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

/bin/sh: can't access tty: job control turned off
