When I attempted to load up Ubuntu in recovery mode the final two lines were:

[ 5.169842] EXT3-fs error (device sdb1): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=19038209, block=76152834
/init: line 231: cannot open /root/dev/console: Input/output error
[ 5.170569] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!


At this point it remains on a blinking cursor.

Thank you very much for all your help. I may delay the installation now until tomorrow as there are guests in and I may be in line for a night on the couch.

Again thanks for everything, I will let you know how this goes.

The error you got when you tried what I told you is because you typed the device name wrong. You typed /dev/sbd and it is supposed to be /dev/sdb. Also, if you're having problems with mount, you can mount automatically from the GUI by double-clicking on the volume from "Computer" when you open up the file browser from the "Places" menu. In that case, the mount point is by default /media/disk and not /mnt/* so pay attention to that and adapt the command line parameters accordingly.

Thanks to everybody for their help here, especially to CJS. Re-installing Ubuntu seems to have everything working fine. I can finally get to bed now.
