Well after a couple days of no replies on the mailing list or forum I
finally figured out what to do.
The key was to boot into recovery mode - yeah stupid I didn't think of it
Then I had to run fsck manually to repair the clusters that were messed up
on the disk.

This was great and all.... but being new to Ubuntu  had not a clue that
recovery mode would
do this for me. Recovery mode in Windows or especially in the days of DOS
could mean something very bad.....

Norton made a lot of money selling Norton tools for a reason.
