Boot to runlevel 3 and login as root.

(1) cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name

8 0 625131864 sda
8 1 1542208 sda1
8 2 83891430 sda2
8 3 1 sda3
8 5 2048256 sda5
8 6 36861111 sda6
8 7 500786181 sda7

hmm... looks like sda7 is the right size for home on my box.

(2) confirm that with 'grep home /etc/fstab'
grep home /etc/fstab
/dev/sda7 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2

yep, /dev/sda7 is /home

(3) (as root) mount the home partition:
mount /dev/sda7 /home

(4) then check that your /home/lxmark is available

Post any errors you receive.

When I run these commands to mount the /home partition, I get the

mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'
