fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve


I have installed Fedora Core 3 and on booting up it gives the error

fsck.ext3:Unable to resolve “LABEL=/”
An error occured during filesystem check
Dropping you to a shell, the system will reboot
when you leave shell

Ok I searched on the net regarding this…

My /etc/fstab had the following entries

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/var/log /var/log ext3 defaults 1 2

My grub.conf had the following entries

title StorTrends iTX 2.0 (2.6.9-1.667smp)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667smp ro root=LABEL=/ elevator=deadline vga=0x318 quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.667smp.img

************************************************** **
In maintenance mode i mounted the / in read – write mode

mount -n -o remount,rw /
