Lee,

I looks like you created first an extended partition as container (sda1)
with
sda5 as swap
sda6 root
sda7 home

Terry,

Sorry, that was in the original email - but yes - sda6 is /, sda7 is /home.

Had problems with System Rescue (32/64 bit), .. so I booted the 11.1 Repair & jumped to a command prompt, mounted /dev/sda6 on /mnt & chroot'd to /mnt. Having the same problem with 11.1, so something really strange is going on.
