While trying to fix my Firefox Sat. update problem I now can't log in. I have my personal files on a separate partition. I assume that I can't just reload Ubuntu and keep my email that is probably on the home directory. Can I copy stuff off the home directory and then re-install Ubuntu on the same partition without formatting and then add those files back in?
Anyway, I assume that is too easy so can't be done. Folks give advice that requires going to the Home directory and run some command lines.
I made an ubuntu CD and booted and see the directories but can't get there. I tried "cd music" and "cd/music" to see if I could just move around on the CD operating system and can't. I did ls and music is one of the sub directories. How would I get over to the Hard Drive home directory to run the various commands folks suggest to free up my password again.
