Knoppix and Win4lin?


Hi, I'm currently downloading Knoppix Live CD, and I have a few questions before I start using it. Here they are:
  1. Will Knopix work if the CD is removed?
  2. If not, how do you boot to windows (not inside of linux, I mean after restart)
  3. Will Knoppix work with Win4Lin?

Thanks!

Knoppix should run becuase it will let you play audio file from a cd. When you take the cd out windows will bootup properly. Knoppix is more of a live cd for those that don't want to install linux on a hard drive. If you like what knoppix has and what it does then I suggest to you Ubuntu. The are both Debian based distro and are great for newcomers. Ubuntu will work with win4lin.

K, thanks! That answered most of my questions. But, I am still wondering if Win4Lin is compatible with Knoppix, and also if I have mp3's on my F Drive (windows), can I use those same files in Linux?

Thanks.

Yes you can but you have to add support for that. some distro's view the use and play of mp3's differently. As for the question about Knoppix you might try the knoppix forum here and see what they say.

First you will have to mount your f driver by using the mount command. if you do a man mount you should get more information on it. Then just use xmms or xine or some player. I would google to see if knoppix has built in support for mp3
