Had bad blocks on my system (debian linux). ran fsck and e2fsck. Now it won't boot, even in Linux single. Stops in initramfs, after correctly identifying the installed keyboard. When I hit ctrl-d it says 'cannot open /root/dev/console' and 'kernel panic' and reboots itself - back to the same place

What is best to do next?I have the original installation CD, and I think some sort of a backup on a network drive - but cannot get to the network drive, and it may not be a system back-up anyway (just key files I have customised)
