I installed Linux on a new Dell PowerEdge 6650 server with 4gb of RAM and a hardware RAID 5 configuration (three 73g HD). After the installation, I changed the settings in the BIOS so that the system would boot using the RAID card. I reboot. The system starts up... runs POST, gets to the GRUB gui and the screen goes black. I then reboot to the GRUB gui again and try to boot into single user mode using GRUB commands, I get the following output on the screen.

My partition layout is:

How can I fix this or should I try to reinstall Linux. Help!
