Have you tried booting from the cd and fsck the root partition?  During the boot
process the root partition will get mounted readonly, then unmounted and
remounted r/w.  It may be its failing to do that for a specific reason due to
the filesystem.

BTW, its not an external western digital usb2/firewire drive by chance?
