Thanks Marc.
I tried this. the result is
***Modified the file system***
Then I have done tune2fs -O has_journal /dev/hda5
creating journal inode:done
This filesystem will be automatically checked every -1 mounts or 0 days 
whichever comes first. Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.
Do not know about these -c and -i switches so not used.

I tried to reboot the Linux but failed with the same reason as before.
The messages are
Kjournald starting, commit interval 5sec
Ext3-fs: mounted file system with ordered data module.
Pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot/sysroot/initrd)failed:2
freeing unused kernal memory: 280k freed
kernal panic: no init found. Try passing init=option to kernal
