Will the Linux Automated Recovery be able to somehow also recreate the 
necessary boot files? Such a function would have come handy for my 
present situation. Thanks to everybodies wonderful suggestions I was 
able to run fsck on the root partition and it found hundreds of lost 
iNodes and wrong references and finally the system boots but I am 
confronted with the following error message.

Server Authorization directory (daemon/ServAuthDir) is set to
/var/gdm but this does not exist. Please correct gdm
configuration /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and restart gdm

Is there any way to recreate /var/gdm and whatever it contained?
