Mount of filesystem fails - Ubuntu won't boot

Forums: 

I am using Ubuntu 9.04, I am having this error "Mount of filesystem fails, Maintenance Shell will now be started, Control-D will terminate this Shell and Re-Try, $root@jojocompas:~# "

My question: How do I get my system to boot, it has been sitting there in the Shell, it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all. I have tried the recovery but each time it sends the system to this Shell. Do I need to do something to start up the Shell?
