You're booting partway off the internal drive. So, we know it's not toast.
But you're just getting the first, limited part of the boot. And it looks like you got the 9.04/Jaunty version of the early boot running, judging by the BusyBox version number. But the full Jaunty system isn't booting.
Your system's probably fixable, but it might be an arduous process. I don't know how badly the system files are messed up. It might be just one file to fix, it might be many.
I'd probably just download a 9.04 Live CD and put in on a flash drive (or use the Netbook Remix's Live USB image), boot it up and save any files off the internal drive that you need. Then completely reformat the drive, a perform a fresh install. Unless you have alot of files to save, I think this'll be the easiest solution.
