URGENT !!!!!! SYSTEM SERIOUSLY BROKEN




Hi all, 

Following  my previous email concerning a deleted root partition the
following has happened. I tried to install debian from the hamm base disks
which I  had in another partition but an error kept coming which did not
permit installation. Both installation from disk and floppies did not
work. I have managed to install a system with a 2.0.29 kernel (bo) Problem
1 the /usr partition contains my old files a df command shows that the
data are still there. But a du /usr shows only the new files from the new
installation. How do I access the old data ? The data are not critical as
they only the debian programs. My personal critical files are in a asecond
disk which I can
access but I rather not mount automatically in case something goes wrong
In the second disk I also haver the hamm debian distribution 
Now I would like to get the usr  stuff working since it is hamm, and I
don't want to have to go through installing libc6 (last time was a
nightmare) how do I go about doing that ?
Please help as I am desperate to get my machine which is critical back in
 some workjing order. 

Any suggestion are welcome 
George
