Desktop is in trash! Help!

Help. My Desktop folder somehow ended up in the trash and I can't get it out.
I can copy it but then lose the system icon on it. Also, I don't remember where it belongs if I am able to get it out. I don't have a backup of my system, yet, was just preparing to do that. I am running 10.5.8 on an imac. Would greatly appreciate some fast help!

There's a Desktop folder for each User. There's also one In the HD folder. Which one was trashed? I am able to change the name of a file that is in the Trash. Try doing that, then moving it out. Just a whim.

Are you in OS X? As in you'r boot up with that folder in the trash?
Have you tried right clicking on the folder and then selecting Put Back?I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
