Disk Issues

I have a single hard drive partitioned 4 ways:

/dev/hda1  as  /
/dev/hda2  as swap
/dev/hda3  as /home ext3
/dev/hda4  as /media/hda4 vfat

When booting I receive an fsck error telling me that the kernel does not 
recognize /dev/hda3 and /dev/hda4  master boot records and then goes into 
Recovery mode as root.

I can do a shutdown -r now and it proceeds to boot into KDM, but can not log 
in because KDE does not find my home directories.   /etc/fstab file looks 
clean.

Need some suggestions to trace this out.  I have had this error before and 
ended up reloading....don't think it is necessary but do not know enough to 
fix it.
