[Techtalk] kernel panic

I'm having a problem with starting my Linux distro on 1 of my machines. I 
have Mandrake dual booted with Win98 and the Win 98 boots just fine. When I 
boot into Linux I get 

kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 3:02

I've deduced that there is a problem mounting hda2. I've tried to mount it 
and it will not allow that from the command line in rescue. I've also tried 
running e2fsck on hda2 and gotten a message stating that this may not be an 
ext2 filesystem ( it is) or that the it has a bad superblock (I've tried the 
next 5 superblocks to no avail).

Any ideas as to how to get this to complete the boot process.
