Knoppix 4.0.2 HDD fails to boot
I installed a Debian system w/Knoppix 4.0.2. Install was flawless.(Yes the CD ran just fine). During bootup, initial stages are all fine, right after device statups pci, it stalls on usb... The first time it did so I tried reboots 3 times and it bypassed usb on the third, ran great. On subsequent boots... No Go, stalls on usb. Whaa?
Athalon 2500, 1Gig RAM, Nv5200, dual drive winXPdrive and Lin Drive(I had Suse before but 10 no longer uses my external modem), I think this shows a normal type system- nothing exotic.
Has anyone else encountered this? Oh yes, the kernel is 2.6.12.
Thanks in advance.
