Unable to resolve host jojoubtwirdskt

I have 2 disk drives that were working fine before and then after a reboot I can't access these drives anymore, I tried to manually mount the drives, I have error message 'unable to resolve host homepc'

The only thing I have done before is uninstalled samba and then I have reinstalled samba, although I still can't see my shared files

can anyone help me with this? I am using Ubuntu 9.10

    Since it's New Year's Eve, I'll be in and out, but, if your can give us some info about your setup it might help.
    a) Are these drives on a local computer or are they shared drives over a network.
    b) When you removed and reinstalled samba did you redo the samba.conf file?
    c) If the drives are on a local computer, maybe the output of fdisk -l, and the contents of menu.list and fstab might help with a diagnosis.
    I think you need to be more specific about your problem. Exactly when do you get the errors, on boot? When trying to access shares?
  • a) Are these drives on a local computer
    b) First I uninstalled all samba files in synaptic package manager and I've
    redone the samba.conf file
    c) Under disk utility I still see the drives, and filesystem is
    installed on a partition of one of the drives and works fine but can't
    access the other partition and the other drive

    ## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified

    ## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

    ## ## Start Default Options ##
    ## default kernel options
    ## default kernel options for automagic boot options
    ## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
    ## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
    ## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
    ## kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
    ## kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
    # kopt=root=UUID=192d370e-9d47-4f9d-bae2-65b7e8834f9e ro

    ## default grub root device
    ## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
    # groot=(hd0,0)

    ## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
    ## e.g. alternative=true
    ## alternative=false
    # alternative=true

    ## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
    ## e.g. lockalternative=true
    ## lockalternative=false
    # lockalternative=false

    ## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
    ## alternatives
    ## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
    # defoptions=quiet splash

    ## should update-grub lock old automagic boot options
    ## e.g. lockold=false
    ## lockold=true
    # lockold=false

    ## Xen hypervisor options to use with the default Xen boot option
    # xenhopt=

    ## Xen Linux kernel options to use with the default Xen boot option
    # xenkopt=console=tty0

    ## altoption boot targets option
    ## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
    ## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
    ## altoptions=(recovery) single
    # altoptions=(recovery mode) single

    ## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
    ## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
    ## alternative kernel options
    ## e.g. howmany=all
    ## howmany=7
    # howmany=all

    ## specify if running in Xen domU or have grub detect automatically
    ## update-grub will ignore non-xen kernels when running in domU and vice versa
    ## e.g. indomU=detect
    ## indomU=true
    ## indomU=false
    # indomU=detect

    ## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
    ## e.g. memtest86=true
    ## memtest86=false
    # memtest86=true

    ## should update-grub adjust the value of the default booted system
    ## can be true or false

    ## should update-grub add savedefault to the default options
    ## can be true or false
    # savedefault=false
