Hi I am running Red Hat 9, out of no-where, I shutdown my computer for a few minutes then turned it back on, and now I am getting the following errors on startup:

Please advise....

JBD: no valid journal superblock found
EXT3-fs: error loading journal.
mount: error 22 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umout /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel: memory 132k freed.
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

Please tell me whats going on.
