No, I havn't got the nerve (yet), until I've backuped an image of my hard

Hmm... I do have the KDE desktop configured to show unmounted devices, but it 
only shows mounted devices.

At the moment I have a more pressing problem: having updated the kernel, it no 
longer plays any sound, even after an hour of fiddling. It's also quite slow 
booting, taking longer than a Knoppix Live-CD-ROM. Going back to the old 2.4 
kernel, the sound is fine, but I can't mount my USB devices...

Looking on the internet, I see about 1000 sound problems of the same nature, 
but no easy solutions, only stuff like "compile your own kernel".

Anyway, I'll have to take these problems somewhere else now, as it has nothing 
to do with KDE.
