First off i would like to say that i am a total linux n00b. With that said, this problem will probably be easily answered. I have installed gentoo, red hat 9.0, and debian very recently. I didn't really like any of them except maybe debian a little bit. I just recently go the new Knoppix 3.4 and i absolutely love it. The thing is i want to run it off my hard drive. So I have been trying to follow the instructions give by the knoppiux website/forums. So i press CTRL-ALT F1 and "then type knx-hdinstall" and it says it isn't a bash command. then i found out i could type knx2hd... which ended up taking me to a installer!
But then when i do the beginner and it formats for me and all, i specify my username and password. blah blah.. then i begin the installation. As soon as the the installing button is pressed i get the error.
Error: Formatting of failed. Some messages from mkfs.ex3: useage mkfs.ex3... the rest of the stuff i just left off... if it will help i can duplicate the message and type the rest of it.
But when i try to partition the drives through the knoppix installer it says my drives are only read only, but when i use cfdisk i can partition with no problems.... what is that?
Thanks for the help in advance.
