cannot boot-up linux, unable to read superblock



Hi, 
I have used installed a centos 4 distribution in my PC for a few months which was quite good. However, the system failed to start last week and shown the following message on startup: 
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
booting 'CentOS (2.6.9-5.0.5.EL)' 
root (hd0, 0) 
filesystem type is ext2fs, patition type 0x83 
kernel /vmlinuz=2.6.9-5.0.5.EL ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet

mount: error 2 mounting none 
switchroot: mount failed: 22 
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2 
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! 
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
I have tried to 
1) linux rescue 
2) skip mounting and go to command prompt 
3) enable lvm and tried fsck for the volumes (one is empty volume? and another failed) 
4) run fdisk to list devices 
5) fsck.ext3 the devices or the LVs
6) run fsck again and specify the superblock number as suggested (from the prompt and "mke2fs -n /dev/hda2) but all failed for /dev/hda2 
Fyi, I remember I have choosen to put everything (except /boot) under / during linux installation and the file system is ext3. 
I really want my data recovered. Please help.
The actual screen dump is as below. 
Thanks, 
VOA
