Greetings all,
When I try to boot up my system I receive the following error:

"the superblock could not b read or does not descript a correct ext2 filesystem. if hte device is falid and it really cotnina an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or uffs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

Any ideas on what I need to do?

Check  /etc/fstab  and remove non-existing disks/partitions,
linux hangs at boot when trying to mount them.
