help! messed my system
ive just made a root acct so that my login acct wouldnt have the root previledges... what happened after my reboot was now i couldnt access my window$ partitions which unfortunately is where i store all my files even in linux... i tried logging as root but ubuntu wouldnt permit logging as administrator on the login prompt... im trying to give back all the previledges that my user acct has had before cause maybe it'll solve the problem, but the problem is i cant run the user account admin programs cause it would freeze up after i put my admin password... how should i do it manually using the terminal... pls help tnx in advance

To mount your windows partition on startup you need to edit fstab. Open terminal and...
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
To allow root to login you need to edit the login preferences. In gnome it's System > Administration > Login Window Preferences > Security. Then check the "Allow local administrator to login." box.Two levels higher than a newb.

My default login gives me all the root previledges. Since in what i have read from books and forums this this not advisable, i made a root acct and just a normal acct. i didnt know that the system would also change the settings on the way my regular acct would work. all i took out was accesses that would enable my regular acct to change settings on the system. so bear with me if im not a linux geek cause im just trying to learn this OS
