Aaargh, I tried to upgrade to 11.04 but with 6 minutes left to complete it froze all up. I had to cut power to try to restart. Now it does not boot anymore. Somewhere in the text I find "kernel panic" so I assume this is something serious? Problem is that on this computer I have my emails and have not been able to recover them yet using the live cd because I am suddenly not the owner any more. 11.04 works perfectly from the live cd.

Copy the /home folder to a different disk, you need root permissions for that. When done, change the owner to you. –  Lekensteyn Apr 30 '11 at 13:09
