You probably will be better off posting a new thread instead of piggy-backing on this one. When you do, try to include any specifics you can (like error messages, your setup, any changes you've made around the time it stopped working, etc).
Hone101, if you have no shell (the same thing as terminal, also known as console) icon in the panel in Gnome, check the menus. There is probably an icon there. If you for some reason don't have Gnome Terminal installed, there are others that probably are installed: xterm, aterm, wterm, Eterm. You may find them in the Gnome menu, I believe. It depends on what distribution (and version) you have.
