    It starts without "extra services" for troubleshooting

    and how come I can't create another user in failsafe gnome...?

    I'm sorry for all the stupid questions, I just started using Ubuntu today...

    Once you are logged in, log out and look at the bottom (i think) of the login screen where there is a menu titled "sessions" choose failsafe-gnome and in the login box just log in as if it where regular gnome.

    If you're running 10.04 or newer, you have to click on your username before the "sessions" box appears at the bottom.

    but do I have to click that every time or will it remember itself? And can I use 10.04 to it's full ability in failsafe GNOME? regular GNOME continues to freeze on me...

    Yes, ubuntu usually loads to the session it was in before it shutdown.

    No, failsafe does not have full ability.

    Try going to System -> Preferences -> Startup Preferences

    Disable stuff you don't use/need/want. That's basically all failsafe gnome is doing.

    That's basically the question I'm asking, what makes failsafe not have full ability?

    I am not sure what it leaves out, but, similar to the windows safemode, it is not meat to do much more than troubleshoot.
