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'
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
