Open Terminal (Applications>Utilities>Terminal
If you know the name of your boot drive, type open *boot drive name* and press enter.
(Ex: open Macintosh_HD). This should open the top level of the drive in Finder.

If you do not know the name off hand you can do the following (still in Terminal):
cd /Volumes (enter)
ls (enter)
This will give you a list of all available Volumes on your machine.

At the top of the window that opens you will see the name of the volume along with an icon to the left. Drag the icon into the device list in Finder. It should be available from then on.

Also know that in Lion, the User Library is hidden by default if that is what you are trying to find on your system drive.

Let me know if this works for you.

David Hall
