I have a Dell Netbook which is running Ubuntu.  I am using a Baum 
Bralleconnect 40 with usb.  My netbook is coming up with an error on 
bootup that my wife tells me reads something like "error mounting a device 
in /etc/fstab" and then gives me the option to go to a recovery prompt. 
If I run brltty at that point it appears to come up but does not find my 
display.  It is version 4.0 and was working with my display earlier.  If I 
run lsusb I do get a list of stuff and it appears to recognize it if I 
plug in a usb memory stick.  Can anyone hlep with suggestions?  I would 
settle for speech at this point or is this a case where we break out the 
usb cdrom and rebuild the system from scratch?
