ubuntu hangs after 'INIT: entering runlevel 2...'

I need to fix this ubuntu LTS dapper, which can't resume booting up to
X. Instead, it hangs at 'INIT: entering runlevel 2...'. Nothing else
happens until I hit ctrl-alt-del and get a root@(none): prompt.
In the first time I ran fsck /dev/hda2 and /dev/hda3. hda2, which
happens to be the root fs, had a lot of fixes, which fsck performed
interactively with me hitting a (big) number of 'yes'. Then I thought
the problem was over, but after reboot, ubuntu hanged again in the very
same step. So, I think there are some system files missing from it,
which couldn't be recovered by fsck.
In respect to configs, the machine is quite standard, kernel 2.6.17-k7
if I recall well. Its very possible that people at the office - where
the machine lives - have not turned it on and off correctly for some
time, which explains the fs errors (fs is ext3, btw). That's all I
remember about it.
Can someone can suggest something?
