Bad idea. FYI, when you're tempted to 'experiment' like this, *don't*
delete... use "mv" to 'move' the file to another name (effectively renaming
it) so you can "mv" it back later.

fstab tells the kernel what devices to mount and where. You must have had a
separate user directory partition being mounted under /home.

From a console or shell, as root, run "fdisk -l > partitionlist.txt" (note:
that's a lower case 'L'.) This will produce a text file containing a list of
partitions on your system. Mount them manually (preferably under /mnt), find
the one containing your user directories and then add it to the
new /etc/fstab. It will then mount automatically during boot.

regards,

Carl
