I'd like to know exactly what wine does and how to configure it.
About Wine, me too
When you find out, post and let me know
It is supposed to run software developed for other OSes, such as Windoze, inside of Linux. Some it will, and some it won't. The best link I've found for Wine info is the Frank's Corner site
Check it out.
Okay, if you're ready to install Knoppix, let's give her a go.
If you have true free space
you don't have to remove RH, but that choice is up to you. If you don't have free space
, I would suggest removing RH and installing Knoppix in it's place. The reasoning is that your RH install has something corrupted, and the amount of time you've already spent hasn't fixed it, so you would probably have to reinstall RH and start over anyway.
So, if you're now running Knoppix, Ctrl + Alt + F1 to get a console. First type su to change to super user, then type knx-hdinstall and follow the directions. When it gives you cfdisk and let's you format the hard drive, just Delete the partitions used for RH, and create one new partition for swap and make it 512MB, and then use the rest of the space (if you have a lot, 10GB is more than enough) for the remainder of Knoppix. You must
have swap space for Knoppix. The way the installer is written, you cannot put other partitions in while installing it, so you may as well just put the rest all under / in one partition. This is not
advisable when you actually pick a distro that you'll want to stick with and use, but for now, for Knoppix, let it be so to fulfill all righteousness
If you can't follow the instructions it would shock me. I think you'll do fine. Let us know what happens.
