lost all sound, root and users [SOLVED]

arghh! i'm so dumb. sad in my haste after installing the new hd, i plugged the sound in to the motherboard sound module instead of the soundcard. lol when i heard it connect i didn't think twice about it being wrong and thought it must be a software issue.  moral of the story: pay attention, double check, or don't be an idiot? tongue

Don't be an idiot is a good moral... reminds me of the time I spent a month debugging my modem software only to find I was dialing the wrong number...

And to make you feel better, when I got my new comp, the speakers wouldn't work for the first day or so until I moved them from line-in to line-out. :-)
