Damn Knoppix Problems


Well so much for using knoppix, I didn't even do anything and It won't work.

I have v3.3 , boot from the disk, at the boot: prompt I hit enter, it stands at a linux prompt for a few seconds then says HDE not ready or something similar, and says that over and over until I pull the power plug in frustration. I tried putting this disk in both of my CD-ROM drives, with no luck.

What kind of hardware do you have in the machine is there a raid array or do you have a raid controller on the motherboard? Have you tried using just failsafe at the boot: prompt to boot with minimal hardware detection? Some other cheat codes you may want to try.

Linux is a very powerful OS but there are some things you have to setup before it will work.
I believe this should work at the boot: prompt type
Code:
boot: knoppix lang=us screen=800x600 desktop=kde
then press Enter.

you can set screen to 800x600, 640x480, etc.
for a list of different options press f2.
