    Terminal installation

    I'm looking to re-instal ubuntu using my flashdrive, but I'd like to backup everything on my computer first. Only problem I'm having is that I cannot reach my desktop. I can access a terminal during startup.

    I'm not extremely tech savey, so detailed explanations would be awesome.

    If you cant acesses the recovery console login and dont have roots passwd then id use annother linux live distro (like puppy linux ) just to back everythjng up... u should even be able to use the ubuntu cd if u press try rather than install

    I'm running off of an HP Mini, so no cd drive unfortunately.

    Don't fully understand your suggestion to use another linux live distro.
