Re: unable to login to linux
If you have another computer or can use a friends, go to linux mint site and download the iso image. That is a copy of your system. If you're using a cd/dvd, burn the image to make it bootable.
I do not have an installation disk or anything to reinstall from
If you can boot from an usb flash drive, use unettbootin to make a bootable usb stick. this will give a Live copy of your system and you can reinstall the OS from it if you can't fix it.
This time use a simple user name and password that you cannot forget. I do.
You might want to try ubuntu 12.04 just to try it out. You don't have to stay with mint. lol
