I'm developing my BLFS currently. I've build the X Window System. All my
development in VirtualBox. To configure X window system in VirtualBox i get
failed. So i decided to move my development files to my hard disk. I've
installed Ubuntu 9.10 (not necessary for my further development but i need)
then mounted my BLFS. I've set the boot loader GRUB for my BLFS.

When i boot my BLFS i got the following error and i cant go further. Once i
press enter key the system gets powered off.

"The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device> "

My partion details follows,

dev/sda1 - NTFS
dev/sd4 - NTFS
dev/sd5 - ext3 / (extended) -> Installed Ubuntu in this partion.
dev/sd6 - swap
dev/sd7 - ext3  -> My BLFS Files here.

I've verified my fstab and GRUB files. I tried to get the solution from
google but that also failed.

I think the problem is in my partion table.Anybody have the idea?? please
help me...
