Yesterday while I was updating the system files within my FC4 installation (yum -update) I received some unknown error messages. As a result I decided to reboot the system. Upon rebooting the system I receive the following information
Booting 'Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1398_FC4)'
root (hd0, 0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partion type 0x83

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 4.2.15 starting
EXT3-fs error (device hda2) ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block -inode=8, block=1032
EXT3-fs: invalid journal inode.

Kernel panic -not syncing: Attempting to kill init.
From the information I can discern that my problem seems to relate to my hdd (specifically hda2). Is there anyway I can boot into my system to "fix" this error without having to do anything drastic (reinstall the system). Although I can work my way around the system I am afraid I will do something that will result in issues that will further compound my problems.
I would be extremely grateful to anyone that can provide some insight into this situation for me. I am not keen on the idea of having to reformat the system as I have a lot of development files that are currently sitting within /var/html/www/<rest of path>.
As always thank you in advance.
