Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This happens to me too, i have done everything it says in the right ordor and way but it says cannot find filesystem KNOPPIX.. and then gives me a bunch of codes that dont do anything,, anyone know what to do
Got the same problem about not being able to find KNOPPIX filesystem and dropping to a limited shell while trying to boot versions 4.4.10 and 3.4.9 from a cd.
I took your "dsl waitusb" suggestion one step further and tried, "dsl nousb", but still only get the limited shell. Would like to try your suggestion about appending, "knoppix_dir=knoppix KNOPPIX_DIR=KNOPPIX BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix", but am confused about how to do that. Could you clarify how to go about doing that?
Update: Booted DSL 4.4.10 from my desktop computer, and then installed DSL to a USB flash drive via DSL's USBHDD utility. Using this USB drive, I WAS able to boot my laptop. Hmmm... still don't understand why I can't boot the laptop (1 year old HP Pavilion) from the CD.
I am having the same problem. Cannot boot from live CD obtained from the Damn Small Linux Book. Also downloaded newer iso image dsl 4.4.10 Still cannot find Knoppix file system. I would like to see a solution as well. Paul
