Question KNOPPIX to load or not to load, quite the enigma...


Hey people, I'm Ben, new to the vast world of Linux and it's secret wonders, for weeks without soughting help from others who know, I have tried to get this KNOPPIX image to mount into ramdisk for weeks on end, but have failed, as a beginner of linux and intermediate with the use of RH9.0...I have learnt many commands and skills especially getting my win2k3 box to communicate supurbly with RH9.0...thank you Samba!

Anyhow, I have as much as booting the USb stick, loading vmlinuz followed by the minirt24.gz and after that scanning for what seems to be SCSI then my USb devices, after that it chucks a p*ss at me and decides it doesn't want to uncompress the knoppix image/can't locate it.

Now, is there somehow a parameter that is causing this, possibly miswritten, although I have taken my syslinux.cfg from another 3rd party source who believes it's in working condition, I beg the differ.

Any ideas?

If you request the config, let me know for self-inspection.

Cheers all!

Ben.

only thing I can think of is you have a bad knoppix ISO.........did you check the md5 sum before burning the ISO image to a CD?? I just download v3.9 and it boots up and works great, and it even configured my ADSL modem, next up is to get sound working......

Thought there might be an alternative

It's not defined as a general linux question, it's for Damn Small linux (DSL), so therefore i asked the question in the forum within.
