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.
I haven't heard of any unsupported hdd's.

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
