I was doing a disk image save with G4L all went great till I rebooted (of course) lol....i got a boot error

Bad magic number in superblock while trying to open /dev/hdb1


Then i get this at a promt


An error occurred during the file system check
dropping you to the shell; the system will reboot
when you leave the shell.

Warning -- SELinux is active
Disabling security enforcement for system recovery
run 'setenforce 1' to reenable
give root password for maintenance
or type (control-D) to continue


I enter the root pass and get

(repair Filesystem) 1 #

I need to know how to fix the bad magic number so i can get the server back up
