    In my Ubuntu I had one partition mounted at /usr one at /home and the other at '/'. they used to show up at 'Computer' window but after I installed all software updates I find that they have disappeared...? Instead there is a CD - Rom and a partition mentioned as ' File System' . How do I get them back. PLease help..?

    Open the Terminal Window and type :
    $ sudo fdisk - l
    This will show your harddisk partition information.
    Mount the partitons you need in the '/mnt' folder and access all the partitions.
    For eg., open the Terminal Window & type:
    $ cd /mnt
    $ sudo mkdir lin_part
    (This will create a folder called 'lin_part' in the '/mnt' folder.
    Now whichever partition you want to mount ( based on the readings of 'fdisk- l')
    $ mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/lin_part
    (this will mount the partition in '/dev/hda2' in '/mnt/lin_part' )
    do the same for other partitions you want to mount. Note they must be mounted
    under a different folder. So create another folder under the '/mnt' folder.
    To unmount the partition type:
    $ umount /dev/hda2
