Paul thanks for the response. I actually found a way to get my archive off the
1. booted in Failsafe mode.
2. created directory dvdrecorder in /media (su to root)
3 mounted the DVD. /dev/hdc /media/dvdrecorder Mounts as read only
4 it also created two additional files in /media .hal-mtab, .hal-mtab-lock
5 after it mounted I went to /media/dvdrecorder and did an ls, both archive
files showed up.
6. Copied the archive I needed to my home directory, rebooted to runlevel 5
and started KDAR. This unpacked the archive and allowed me to restore
directories I needed.

Now I just need to figure out how to restore certain email files without
destroying emails I have recieved since starting 10.2. Also hope I can
somehow figure out why runlevel five does not detect a DVD or allow me to
mount it as root.

I'll look at fstab entries tomorrow.

Thanks again.
