You cannot access means what ? It doesn't boot or You are unable to login or any perticular situation you are facing ?

WATS UP divyashree, I couldn't boot up my linux O.S. BUT it was sorted

out what happened was that one of the commands was deleted making it

unable to access the linux O.S. so basically the laptop crashed. I LOST

six months of work done because i culdn't retrive work from the hard

disk, i do not understand why, but its all good. i think i need to be

schooled on this linux thing. thanks for your concern.

Yes VOKAY, if you provided us the exact situation ,then we might have helped you to bring back to normal without any data loss. Because there many reasons you cant access and many symptoms.

Yes you should create a partition and use it for your data. And the partition should be accessible to all platforms (windows,linux,..) that is formatted with a common filesystem supported by across platforms. So even your OS crashes you can recover it after a fresh installation.

You know partitioning will reformat your drive, and delete everything?

disk,
What did you tried?
Does the system boot?
Can you boot from a cd?

Kind regards

I think Linpus Linux is a piece of crap, with lots of Acer's wrong decisions - try http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook (http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook/get-ubuntu/download)
