    tried changing the aufs to
    /dev/sda3 / defaults 1 2

    no luck

    How many paritions did you make when you did your HD install? Is the /home directory on a seperate partition? Are you sure /dev/sda3 is the correct partition? Usually on an HD install, the partitions are /dev/hdaX unless you are using SCSI drives.

    Any specific error messages you getting when you attempt to login?

    I know I'm using the correct partitions. sda is for SATA drives.

    My only issue is that the /tmp directory permissions get changed on mount and unmount. I think this could be a tmpfs issue?

    cybrsnpr, thanks for all your help.

    Well, sorry I couldn't fix your problem. Maybe one of the other forum members has an answer.

    Why did you create a new user?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    After you give the answer from Barry's post,
    can/ did you delete the user and all associated directories and then make a new one? If not try it and post results.
    Also maybe post your fstab and lilo.conf files per pastebin.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    because I don't want to use root. also, Vlc won't start with root.

    I use grub:
    title BackTrack 3 Final KDE
    rootnoverify (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz vga=0x317 root=/dev/sda8 ro quiet splash autoexec=xconf;kdm
    boot

    fstab
    #aufs / aufs defaults 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

    /dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults 1 2
