I just got my virtual xp up to speed. I don't want to start over. This is the second time rhel 5.3 has crashed. Anybody have any ideas?
As the others have pointed out, this is too ambiguous: you need to be specific.
Which files seem to be deleted and what is it that makes you suspect this?
How are you trying to communicate with RHN? How have you been doing this until now and what has changed? What are the tests RHN want you to run? How do they expect you to communicate the results to them?
How are you trying to mount a usb flash drive and why?
Reinstalling is likely to be counter productive now you have engaged RHN support. Since this is not the first time you have experienced this, your test and reports will be useful for them to prevent this sort of thing happening in the future.
