Looks like  your partition table could be f****d up :/

Can you access the disk with fdisk or cfdisk and check the partition status ?

I guess that a cable might have slipped out from the disk too, but that's not that probable.

And all partitions are on the same disk ?

Can you read the partition table in cfdisk/fdisk ?

Why not just boot into single user mode, ie. at the boot prompt type "linux S" and run the e2fsck /var (or the /dev/hda# <-- the partition # of the var) to check the file system and let the e2fsck to fix your problem.

All IDE hdd's are supported by Linux. As far as I know.

kernal panic don't mean the HDD gone, you can try using the free diagnostic utility from the vendor of your disk to check for problems with the disk. www.maxtor.com
