I was checking out what is on these Live CD's, have heard a lot of good things using Knoppix live CDs to do different task. But they will not boot for me. In the verbose screen it gets as far as trying to recognize my ethernet and hangs.
HERE ARE SOME OF MY SPECS:
2.80 ghz Intel Pentium 4
MB: Intel corp Ser# TGHZ50807751
BIOS: Intel Corp BF86510A.15A.0085.P20.0412152353 12/15/2004
RAM: 1024 MB
Intel(R) 82865G Grahpics Controller
Philips 150P (Monitor)
Audio: Realtek Ac97 Audio
Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connections
Nothing jumps out as something that would cause problems, though I'll freely admit I don't know hardware very well. Most obvious thing is either a bad download or bad cd burn. You should chech the MD5 sum for the .iso file you downloaded, and when you burn the disc you should try using a lower speed than is the default.
