@caf4926 Thanks too. I do not have the 9.3 DVD around. So I think the best way is to do an update. Due by the fact that the system is not workable right now How can I do an back up of documents??? So far I tried an Ubuntu live cd to grap the staff and push it on an USB drive.
But some files could not be copied. The message was something like no access to open the file.
If you have a brilliant Idea it would be perfect.
I justed tryed an suse 11.2 live CD.
Even on suse I can not see the folder documents.
This is the reason why i belive it is a permission right thing.
If i look at the permission rights for the folder group says forbidden.
And I remember that I changed some rights of this user
Updating from 9.3 to 11.2 is not a real option. I doubt it would work. If the disk is ok and your hardware will run 11.2 I recommend doing a clean install but tell the installer not to reformat home partition. This will preserve the data in /home. If for some reason your data is not stored in /home or a separate partition then you need to back up before the install.
As root you should be able to access and reset any file permissions.
