knoppix liveCD install works great, HD install not so good


Hi-

I tried the Knoppix LiveCD on my laptop and it worked great- automatically detected all my hardware. I like it so much, I went ahead and did a full hard drive install, and it doesn't work nearly as well. I had to manually mount my external hard drive and haven't gotten my networking or hotplug to work yet. I can still boot to the liveCD and everything works perfectly.

Is there a slick way that I can get my hard drive install to run the same autodetect boot sequence as the liveCD?

thanks in advance,
stephanie

If you are using 3.4 , I think some of those issues are addressed in the fixed iso they put out yesterday. ( 5/10/04 )

By-the-way.... Did anyone happen to notice the /boot/grub directory with iso9660 support in it? That should mean that you can make a grub boot menu on cdrom. I have already done this using the grub iso9660 that comes with RIP linux.
