I d/l the ISO last nite from the DSL site. Should the Knoppix have already been on the machine or in the d/l. and what is it? Thanks
By DSL do you mean software or a DSL -connection- to the internet? It sounds as if you donwloaded some kind of add-on ISO or module, not a complete distribution? The error message seems to refer to the fact that the CD resulting from burning the ISO requires an already installed version of Knoppix to be present for it to run. Knoppix is a linux distribution, just like Fedora, Mandrake, or Suse.
You need to provide more information as to what you are doing and what exactly you want to accomplish.
