I'm afraid I can't. It just happened. I only can describe what was I doing,
although it must be useless....
The system booted with linux 2.4.17-rc1. I was readin mail in kde
when I tried to mount my vfat partition on /win to listen mp3. (as a
user, of course). But I couldn't mount it. Reason?:
ls: mtab: permission denied
Then I log as root, but ls -l /etc/mtab said:
ls: mtab: permission denied
any chmod in /etc/mtab: (as root)
chmod: getting attributes of mtab: Permission denied

After this, the filesystem started to fail a lot in all other programs
, the problem is in some files in /etc.
