Description of problem:
i updated my FC3 box last night, everything was working fine and then it computer just restarted and i got the following error when i rebooted:

booting fedora core (2.6.12-1.1386_fc3)

root (hd0.0)
filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /nmlinuz-2.6.12-1386_fc3 ro root=/dev/volGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, seize 0x193551

error 16: Inconsistent file system structure

press any ket to continue.....

(if i press any key nothing happens)

I tired to do a fresh reinstall, with FC3 and RH 4.0 but it would give me the following error:

Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
Comment 2 abu 2006-01-19 07:23:04 EST
whatever it was, seems to have wacked by HDD, now when i try and boot from the 
fc3 cd or RH cd, it comes back saying that it hasn't detected my HDD.

Ive tired it with win xp, and same thing, ive booted from ERD commander and the 
same thing, its not detecting my HDD.

so thus i cant install nothing on it at the moment, do you know of any ulitiy 
that allows me to totally wipe it and start over a fresh?

This sounds like problems with your hardware.  I'd recommend ensuring that all
cables are firmly connected and if so, then your hard drive may be dying.
