[sf-lug] fun with computers

Yesterday evening I tried to update KlamAV on my Mandriva 2008
machine. Well the install didn't have a compiler and some other
tools in the PATH so I tried to download and install such. Somehow
along the way by 2100 I had managed to get the computer to a non-working
status. By the time I had tried a few things I was too tired to
continue and left it on all night(no biggie).
This morning after a few false starts I got the thing working
again though the login would not recognise my password and I had to
start doing the install again to get a new user with an easy to type
password from whose account I could reconfigure login so that I didn't
need a password.
Now the main problem is that Mandriva refuses to see the external USB
drives which have never been invisible before?
Any hints from the knowledgeabled & skilled?
And I must say I am glad to be in touch with you all again.
