Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

These are the last two line that appear after my knoppix boot stops. I'm trying to boot my bootable disk I made from the image but I just can't seem to get it working.
md5 checked ok
bios setup to boot from cdrom 1st
Could it be I downloaded a bad file? I downloaded the same file to another computer and made a bootable disk from that one and ran it on this machine and got the same results. Is my computer not reading the drive after I boot, that's what my conclusion has come to be. Any other ideas and feedback to help me solve this would be greatly appreciated.
I burned the image to CD. Made a bootable disk. Booted my computer and got to setup screen, hit enter and the boot process stalls after it gets to this screen....
looking for CDROM in /dev/scd0
Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry. Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
Additional builtin commands available.
cat mount umount
insmod rmmod lsmod
That's it, where the knoppix# is a prompt.
Can anyone tell me why it's not working.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
knoppix is looking for its loopback filesystem image
on the cdrom drives then the hard drive.
it should be called knoppix, in a directory called knoppix
on the cdrom or hard drive.
check and see if the that exists on the cdrom. if it does,
knoppix can't see it for whatever reason.
you can try putting it on the hard drive if you want to.
you only need to make a directory "knoppix" and put
the big file knoppix in that
