First of all boot in to single user mode and disable automounting of Vfat file systems...For that open file "/etc/fstab" and remove the lines that point to Vfat file systems...
After that you should be able to boot in to properly...But one more doubt i have is..If your Vfat paritions are screwed then still your linux system should boot can't host any Linux system file on a Vfat parition...Thus i come to conclusion that...actually your ext3 partitions are screwed..and for that enter in to single user mode and do a fsck on your file system

And now it should work... biggrin.gif
