Knoppix Help


I am running Knoppix but I have no clue what to doa nad I am having problems because my speakers don't work... Nay 1 kno why? Also because I am a complete newbie to Linux... I was wondering what you do in the Shell - Konsole and like i have a print out of commands but im still lost. Also with this distro that runs of a cd is there any way to install programs or i can only use what is on the disk.
(ie. I want to run apache but i need to d/l it so would i still be able to run it or no?)

Go to the App launcher in the bottom left corner,click Multimedia>Sound>kmix and check the volume control.
You type commands into the shell/console like you did with the old DOS prompt,except the Linux shell is 1000x more useful.
Here's a useful command: whereis -it looks for stuff.You can use locate also.
Try typing this: xman -it starts a graphic front to view man pages,which describe how to use those commands you have on that printout.It may or may not be installed on knoppix,havent checked.
The knoppix live-on-CD cd cant have programs added to it.You need to install Linux to a hard drive to do that.
You should start doing some reading on Linux basics.

apache webserver is on ver 3.1, it actually work farly well.

If you edit any of the config files, the settings will be lost when you reboot from the cd.

take a look in /etc/init.d it has quite a few server programs in there.

Does anyone know what these lines mean......

looking for CDROM in

\scs\dev\

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

knoppix#

That's it, where the knoppix# is a prompt.
Can anyone tell me why it's not working.

You can run software on a hard drive from knoppix.
You could download the apache source, put it on
a hard drive, compile it there and use it there.
Just save your settings or config files on the hard
drive so you don't lose them every time.
I made my own knoppix cdrom that has the software i
want, and can save settings to the hard drive if i want.

boot prompt.
