    Use the command line (open up konsole) and type
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    and post what comes up

    You should be able to access your home directory though, since I'm assuming that suse boots fine.

    Hope it helps

    Well, if your system couldn't access the files at all, then it wouldn't be starting up.

    I am assuming that you are booting to a complete desktop. If not, you need to let us know exactly what you see and what happens between boot and where you end up.

    If you can get to a working desktop, try to open a shell (Konsole). If it won't launch, press Ctl-Alt-F6 all at the same time. This will take you to another pseudo-terminal where you can log in with your username and password. Once you do so, you can type
    Code:
    ls -l
    and see if you get anything back.

    If you can open the shell, then type
    Code:
    dolphin
    to try to start Dolphin up. If it won't launch, you will get some error messages that you can post here.

    Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to console screen 1 and log in (as yourself)

    check your permissions for your home directory
    # ls -l /home
    you should see something like
    drwx------ 10 yourname users 2007-08-22 10:01 guest
    (depending on your umask) if the first 4 characters aren't drwx you don't
    have access to your home directory and you need to fix some permissions.

    To see fstab to what should be mounted
    # cat /etc/fstab

    To see what is mounted
    # mount

    Well /home exists in fstab - does it show up with mount?

    Not sure where you are in this - if you're in KDE open up a konsole session
    and try ls or other commands (like less or cat). If you can access your
    files with these they're there and the permissions must be Ok. If you can't
    get to your files from the CLI you've got a problem (TM).

    As others have said you can launch dolphin or konqueror from within konsole
    and see if any error messages are produced.

    Let's face it, if you're running kde you must have access to your home
    directory :-)
