I'm totally new to Gentoo/Linux.
I just installed gentoo, and rebooted.
Everything seems to go ok, until checking root filesystem.
There i get the following message:

fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ROOT
/dev/ROOT:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might rty running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

Can someone plz tell me how exactly i can fix this or is this beyond repair and should i redo the complete installation ? I just followed the handbook , i don't know where it went wrong.
