Thanks, Eric, that's exactly what I've done. 


Unfortunately there are many different error conditions that could result in 
an "invalid superblock" message and it seems like it would be a hard job (at 
least for me!) to work out which one it was as I don't know how to compile a 
package or even how to get the right source code for Puppy Linux (which I 
think is almost Debian compatible). 

I guess this is going off-topic now and I should ask on other lists for help 
with that? 

Any assistance appreciated.
