Does this error happen during the install? If so, then there may be
hardware problems or something that Linux can't deal with. Is this an
old or new laptop? What is the processor? If you try to reinstall,
does it crash in the same way?

If it happens after the install, then you need to do a manual fsck
(or e2fsck) in single user mode. Check the January 2001 archive
(Jan 30-31, 2001) for a sketch of the procedure. A manual fsck can
be pretty intimidating. Feel free to bring the laptop to the meeting,
someone can probably take a look.
