Hmmm, I can't imagine what is happening. Looks at first sight that files
got erased or corrupted. 

Have you tried to boot single user? (edit the kernel line in grub, erase
the "rhgb quiet" at the end and replace it with "single" - without the
quotes, of course). 

Another option would be to boot into rescue mode using the first (boot)
fedora core 4 disk and see what's going on in the affected linux
