"Can't find KNOPPIX image" when booting from USB Pendrive
 
I installed DSL to my Pendrive using the "Install to USB Pendrive" script on DSL. When I boot, though, it hangs at "Looking for KNOPPIX image in /dev/sda", and then prints a large list of "Looking for KNOPPIX image in /dev/blahblahblah". Then it says "Can't find KNOPPIX image", and then says things like "sed: command not found" and "awk: command not found." Help!:cry:

Try at the lilo prompt typing 'linux root=/dev/xxxx' where xxxxx is the device name your pendrive is in linux (sda, hda etc.)

Booting w/ "dsl root=sda1" fixed the problem. Thanks!
