Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

By the way, @ubuntunew has your problem resolved? @TobiSGD I think your last post had the safest and the most obvious solution considering the problem and also considering even tougher situation can arise.
I have no good answers other then I went through this problem a lot at first. The easiest solution is to keep /home on a separate partition so that when this happens you can easily fresh install and have your data be there. Just thought it was worth a mention in case of a next time.
