I did a normal startup, as before the catastrophe. And, I had the same 
situation before the catastrophe - that is why, in part, I did what I did to 
my / partition (since hda6 was /, hda5 must be swap, i thought).

By the way, this is not the first time I get this problem of mixed up 
partition names. I had during dapper installation on a different computer. I 
was doing it into a computer with windows and debian, and I have played with 
partitions a lot. So in the Dapper installer partitioner I saw the partitions 
numbered in a wrong way. I guest the right one by it"s size at that time.
