So thanks for the info about getting into my files.
Do you know how to transfer those files to an external hard disk from that menu.
I donīt know much about linux, and the guy who gave it to me died before teaching me anything, thatīs why i am posting in newbies...
I was running a version of Unbuntu, and then it said in the built in upgrade system that there was a version availble called Sea Horse. I think (9.02). I clicked upgrade and followed the instructions.
When it told me I Must do Run liloconfig(8) I tried to open a terminal and do that, but it said bad command, I tried many commands and still couldnīt It also said to execute /sbin/lilo, but that also didnīt work, and the message said that if I didnīt do those things that the upgrade wouldnīt work, that for my computer this was the first time to use Lilo, something I still donīt know what is.
SO because it didnīt work, and because it seemed important, I restarted the computer when prompted thinking I could do the run liloconfig(8) and execute /sbin/lilo when the computer started back up. It however reverted to a shell, or that what it said with the information that I put above. I have no idea even how to use DOS in windows, much less a shell in linux. That is all the information I have.
If you or anyone can help Great! if not, then please tell me how to get those files out of there, and I will reinstall windows.
