    I did use chown as you suggested and it says "changing owner. read-only filesystem" (so @ next to fstab can also mean read-only`?) what I do not understand. The only thing is running live Mandrake as somebody suggested earlier in this thread, but I did not change the file system , it's still ext3 and I have been editing the fstab before. Live Mandrake changed something, it seems

    Hello again - I forgot to look at this. There's a previous thread which may help, though the problem went slightly unresolved, I think it might help you reach a solution.

    My guess is a corrupted filesystem. I've never encountered one before but the fsck command might resolve it for you. Read man fsck and Google around. This would explain your difficulties, but doesn't suggest any easy answers.

    No worries -well, thank you, I will check it and get back as soon as I can!
