My drive died on my laptop. Maybe Dell had some monkeys putting together
their laptopps. Your errors look very similar. :(

I bought a new drive and then called Dell. They sent me a new drive. You
can borrow my spare while you are waiting. 

Here is what I got when I tried with the Ubuntu boot disk. 

root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

# dmesg | tail
