okay, this is going to sound really stupid, because I can't do anything in any mode-anything I type or to do after that message give me a 'FAILED' as the response. Perhaps, you can tell how to get around this because, unlike Windoze, I have never had this kind of problem before.....
, I have tried answering yes and it tells me failed also (it is driving me nuts!!). It brings up an option to repair in maintenance mode or reboot (ctrl-D). Reboot takes me thru the same stuff again, and the maintenance asked me for the root password, at which I enter it. It then goes to this line:
(Repair filesystem) 1#
I try typing yes
, and all I get is a single y
down the page, flashing for a while, then the monitor goes blank. If I type any other reply, it does 1 of the following:
1) /bash/command not found
2) (Repair filesystem) 2 #
I have even tried entering root password again (I am willing to try anything at this point!), but it comes back with a 'not authorized' message.....
Any clues what could be going on there?
Thanks in advance for more help!!
