I have booted Knoppix and run fsck Later when I tried to boot, I get the
NET4: Unix domain sockets 1.0/SMP for Linux NET4.0.
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
Freeing initrd memory: 319k freed
EXT2-fs warning: checktime reached, running e2fsck is recommended
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
Red Hat nash version 3.2.6 starting
Loading jbd module

ext3: No journal on filesystem on ide0(3,3)

pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel mrmory: 220k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
This seems an improvement of some sort.
Is there anything else you can suggest to try now?
BTW, I can boot to WinXP without problem.
Thanks a million,
