Nothing worked, now I think I lost my files...
I tried all the suggestions and nothing worked. I editied that file and choose all the options you guys suggested but it just kept logging into a shell and I could not start the gui from the prompt using the command you suggested. Just in case I'll let you know how this happened to begin with. I was running a loop for several days and it hung my pc. I had to push the off button to reboot, then I could never get back to GUI to that.
I decided to do a repair, using "rescue" option from boot disk. I re-installed boot loader...this did nothing. So I booted to the install disks and tried to reinstall LILO. When it asked about partitions that it found I choose use existing..instead of format new...I thought this was my safe bet. Anyway..now I buit to a new GUI with none of my previous settings, and my "home/dev" directory is missing now and that has all my scripts!! AAhhhhh!!! Sorry! ;)
Do you think my files are gone? How do I undelete?
