Your filesystem may be damaged.  Your /disk/ may be damaged.  Boot with
something else (e.g., a bootable CD) and run fsck (e2fsck) on the disk.  If
that is not the issue, try reading the whole disk device (dd if=/dev/hd?
of=/dev/null bs=1048576 count=1048576).  If that is not the issue, then a
reformat, reinstall, and restore may be in order.
