Snow Leopard Hangs on Boot at Apple Logo- White MacBook

Please Help!

After recently doing a fresh install of Snow Leopard, it was working great for about a week, and now it hangs at boot and flashes the Apple Logo, a NO sign, and a folder sign. I booted in verboose mode and it say that it could not load drivers.

I had this problem before and I used Leopard's (10.5) Archive and Install feature to fix it.

Where is this located on SL (10.6) ? I DO NOT want to loose my data

Thanks all for your help!
Tim

Try:

1. Booting in Safe Mode and do a Repair Permissions with Disc Utility.

2. Booting from your Installer DVD to see if you can recover the files.
