KNOPPIX DVD question



Alrighty, I downloaded the KNOPPIX .iso images to a DVD+RW. Using an HP Pavilion zd8000 laptop with Windows XP Professional. I also have Norton GoBack installed (say what you will about Norton, but that GoBack diddly has saved my buns on more than a few occasions.) Anyway, when you hit the spacebar while GoBack is loading during start up, it gives the option to boot from the CD drive. I do that, and it tells me that the disc in the drive isn't bootable. What the crud?

Minor note: when I get around to backing up my hard drive, I plan to repartition the sucker and dual-boot between WinXPPro and Debian. I just want to use KNOPPIX for now to get a feel for Linux in general and see if I really want to go this rout.

Thanks a million! ^_^

Did you burn the ISO as a DVD image?

Two of what? I see only one Knoppix DVD. Did you do a checksum against this to verify that the ISO didn't get corrupted during download? I'm still not convinced that you necessarily burned the ISO as a disk image, given your follow-up response ("There were 2 of them"). Can you outline the exact steps you took to burning this thing?

Edit: I see two DVDs of Knoppix 4.0, but one's the German version (see how it ends in .de?), and the other's the English version (see how it ends in .en?).

I went here: http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-mirro...u/pub/knoppix/ and clicked into the DVD directory and downloaded everything BUT the DE files. Not sure what I'm supposed to put on the disc and not. I downloaded everything to the hard drive first, then burned it.

(For the record, I have to use FTP or HTTP for this. I wanted to use the Bit Torrent, but with the school's firewall, it moves at 1KB/sec.)

In the DVD folder, I don't see anything ending with an ISO extension--just iso.sha1, whatever that means, and those are each 1 kb (clearly not DVD images). Go to this mirror instead and download these two files:

KNOPPIX_V4.0.2CD-2005-09-23-EN.iso
KNOPPIX_V4.0.2CD-2005-09-23-EN.iso.md5

Then, do a checksum on the first one against the second one. Then, make sure you burn the ISO as a disk image and not just data.

The sha1 file is just another hash file but using the sha1 hashing algorithm rather than md5.

How do I burn it as an image and not just data? Windows help isn't proving very helpful here. If I'm going to need a program to do it, please keep it free/dirt-cheap. I'm a college student, and therefore perpetually broke. (The amount of freebie software avalible for Linux is a big part of its appeal to me.)

Not to be mean or anything, but if I take the time to Google something and link to it, the least you can do it click on the link.

Sorry.

Not on my own computer right now. I'll go at it when I get off of work.

I think you don't have burning software. If you continue through the newbie forum and look at all the Knoppix topics , there is a post including a link to a free image tool.I don't recall the specific post or URL , but if you need it it is there to be found. I didn't have software installed on this machine and ran into the same problem you did. I used the aforementioned software without a problem. It installs a selection directly in your CD/DVD drop down menu to "burn as image".

Hope this doesnt double post , but here is the link you are looking for.

http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

That will allow you to burn an image instead of a file copy directly from your existing disk drop menu.
Good luck,
Eric

Pretty sure it's the mirror I got it from. After I posted this, I downloaded .iso's for dsl and INSERT and those booted fine. (Actually, I'm on the latter right now. =-P) dsl didn't recognize my network card, though, and I don't know how to force it to. One of the mini-distros on this INSERT disc also didn't recognize it. Dang.

Will try downloading from a different mirror and see if that helps. Anyone know of any mirrors that are not likely to cause the same problem again?
