Dell Mini issue, KNOPPIX filesystem not found
Okay, here's my issue, but first, some background.
I am not a newbie to Linux, however, I am not an expert. I've used XDSL on my XBox for the past year, no problems at all, not famialar with the cheat codes for booting however. I finally got a computer of my own, and it's a laptop, a Dell Mini, got it for free. I cannot access the BIOS for some reason, but I can still boot from the USB. I decided to install DSL to my flash drive, I am not sure what it is, it says simpletech on it, and it has a blue light, issued by my school. I used syslinux to make it bootable. I am able to boot into linux, but I'm not sure if it's actually booting, it can't seem to find the KNOPPIX filesystem. I get the two penguins when it boots up, says that it's searching for USB's, and then the CD partition. It has no CD drive, and as I've already said, the KNOPPIX filesystem is on the USB drive. It then tells me that it cannot find the KNOPPIX filesystem, and I have limited functions, or something like that. Can anyone help me out here? Primarily to change it so it doesn't look for a CD drive with the KNOPPIX folder...
Please and thank you!,
