Help. I used some unix commands in my terminal window earlier today in an attempt to enable permissions, recover/mount volume from recent firewire bug.

I copied and pasted the characters from the Apple Knowledge Base so I wouldn't mess everything up, but somehow ---- it's messed up! When I attempt to close the final Terminal window a box pops up and reads:

"Closing this window will terminate the following procedures inside it: login, tcsh, man, sh, sh, less"

Only choices are "cancel" or "terminate". I'm afraid to click "terminate" - seems so final! Now I cannot shut down to see if any of the steps I took to recover data from my ext. fw drive were successful. Someone - please help!!! THANKS!!

I suppose it is something that can worry a few people

I think when I first used the Terminal I can across this problem

So I said "Well What the Hell" press the button, and the computer was still in one piece :D
