OK, the next test is a reboot, but there's a slight chance that your PC will refuse to boot .. if it does, do you know how to "comment out" those 6 entries in /etc/fstab ? (from a LiveCD/LiveUSB)

Yes I know what to do place a # at the begining of each line is that correct ?

Booted perfect all the shortcuts are working and I can't thank you enough

You deserve a medal for perseverance, if this exercise proved anything is why people like me should NOT be using Linux, but it wont stop me so keep alert because it probably wont be long before i break something else and I'll probably need you again

Thank for all your help

Graeme

You're welcome :)

Oddly enough, with the fight it put up, I'll bet you remember how to do it better than if it worked first time :)

Do you honestly think I would remember how to do that again if I had to ? :)

I intend to go over this and see what I can learn from it

Dont know what else to say except thank you so much

No problem .. I enjoy this stuff , or I wouldn't do it :)

BTW, if you've ever tried troubleshooting a broken Windows network, you'd quickly realise Linux is no harder, believe me ;)
