comment Unused services to disable after a fresh installation?
I can tell from your questions you are in some kind of multi-user environment. Mentioning this would greatly help you to get more accurate answers.

how are you sure the drive is dead? btw - you might be able to get your data back, if you can find a professional file recovery service.

Danny Staple added some useful instructions. As for editing the fstab I'll add a link for you (if someone else doesn't beat me too it) a bit later, as I (right now) am a bit too busy to properly update my question with proper details.

this should do the trick. Only problem will be that he will need to rerun this every time he needs access.

comment Installing Ubuntu on a SSD
A 32bit OS can address up to 4GB (Windows XP was limited to 3GB) - so yes and no. Ubuntu 32bit can use a PAE kernel (with page address extensions) - allowing the 32bit system to use 5GB or more. If you install more than 4GB RAM (unlikely you will), the OS will use the pae kernel (if I remember correctly, automatically). If it doesn't do so automatically you can install it easily from software centre.
