I am using the same kernel version as mentioned in the bug listing. But
still the problem persists. Let me know if you find a way out of this
problem. I am still googling to find out a solution....

Recovery CD would be better :-( I dont mount that partition....

think the problem was me trying to create more than 4 primary
partitions. I had used GParted to repartition my disk and was able to
recover the lost space. Actually I had created the fifth partition for
swap. As I could not I was using linux without any swap enabled.
Thanks to your information, I had created extended partitions and
Thanks for your help!!
