Hi Catalin, Karl, Leonard, Mike and  Nils
Thanks a lot to you all to assist me with my system disaster.

I would appreciate an additional effort and help ...
... to avoid resp. block the quite regular system fsck at boot time, 
coz I fear that the fsck may bring my system into real troubles !?

My systems HDD has 120GB !
Another source means the HDD to have 2249,08 GB !?
HOOH ???

So I would like to have all automatic checks stopped ...
... until I have backup my /home/svobi and the Documents and Settings in
WinXPP !!!

Your advice and guidance is very appreciated and hot awaited. ;-)

Currently I am reading and studying your rsync suggestions and 
trying to prepare the external USB HDD for it:

Unfortunately I am facing some errors and problems to get it solved and 
need little more time to find my wrong-doing ;-|

Once more: TQ !!!
Cheers, svobi
