My Linux Ubuntu Inspiron Mini 10v Netbook Crashed….

It was working fine yesterday. I was running a MySQL database (which tends to be one of the most CPU intensive things I do), and the performance was fine. It was working fine this morning too, but then I decided to reboot (I can’t remember why) and bam!…. It crashed… It tells me to press F2 or F12 for boot up options, but nothing happens when I do (The Mini 10V requires you press the FN key to enable the function keys). Instead I get the following screens, and it just hangs on the second one… The main error seems to be:

mkdir: cannot create directory /var’: Not a directory
