Hard drive's not working for knoppix hdinstall


Hi there

I'm trying to install Linux onto my computer. I have two hard drives, an 18gig and a 6gig. Both these hard drives were wiped of all partitions so I'm using Knoppix 3.9 to connect to the internet for help.

Now when I tried to use the knoppix hdiinstall commands nothing worked.
I tried to cfdisk the drives but they couldn't be opened.
I then tried the partition editor which listed all my drives and let me partition them and format them properly, apparently.
So then I tried the hd install again and still nothing happened. I waited for about 5 minutes then Ctrl+C'd it.

If anyone has any ideas how I can get my hard drives working so I can do a proper installation it would be appreciated

Thanks

Karl

There are loads of sites if you search google. From what i've heard it's NOT recommended to try and install Knoppix to your hdd.

LQ also has a good thread with this topic, go here:
