I'd try to boot the installation cd, to interrupt the boot countdown and
to switch into the command line mode of the boot loader and to enter the
command "lsdev". Beside those on the cd, you should see the file systems
available on your hard disk then, too. By entering the command "set
currdev=disk1s1a" (e.g., replace "disk1s1a" by the partition name of the
root fs on the hard disk) and entering commands like "ls" and "cd" you can
try to look at the root fs to see whether there's something wrong.
