OK, so the experienced among you will already see that I'm an ex-PC newbie and have made a fundamental error, because the next time I tried to log in (and everytime since) I get an error message telling my I can't log in......
Please tell me there is an easy remedy!
The easy remedy is to move your "home" folder back to where it came from.
You just cannot move folders around like that "willy-nilly".
What you need to do is...boot the computer from an external hard drive (with 10.7 Lion installed on it)...or boot the computer from a Lion boot disk (CD/DVD) or "Lion" USB stick (I'm not exactly sure what you have at your disposal).
