OP, if you want to get help, at least consider not to break the thread
and the subject line at the same time.

Instead of explaining your issue, why don't you follow the hints others
already made? And/or explain exactly what you do.

Please post the output of

ls -l /home
cat /etc/fstab

I don't understand you. "su" isn't recognised, but you su to user "a"?
