Default Ubuntu not booting: system _was_ working

I have a two-week old Kubuntu 8.04 installation that is now failing to
boot. When I start the computer, I get the Kubuntu graphic, then it
drops to tty1 and I get a text login. When I log in with my username
and password I get a message that the system is read only. Other than
/ no partitions are mounted. As /home is it's own partition I cannot
access my files there. I then logged in as root (I do have a root
password) and tried running init 5 however that did nothing.

What must I do to diagnose this? Thanks.
