i got this error message during boot up

ext2fs_chck_if_mount: No such file or directory while determining wheter /dev/ROOT is mounted.
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 filessystem. 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 try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>


please help thank you!

Can we see your /etc/fstab file?

in /etc/fstab, replace /dev/ROOT with /dev/device_name_of_root_partition (fex: hda3 if you followed the handbook partition layout)
