Knoppix stalls on boot -Solved
I would like help getting a Knoppix ver5.1.1 live CD to boot on my computer. Computer is a Gateway, PentiumII, 512 Ram, 2HD, Win. XP.
When I try to boot from the CD it displays this:
Welcome to the KNOPPIX Live GNU/Linux on CD!
Running Linux Kernel 2.6.19.
Total Memory available: 514984kB, Memory free: 505436kB.
Scanning for USB/Firewire devices ... Done
Enabling DMA acceleration for: hda [Maxtor 90840D6]
Enabling DMA acceleration for: hdb [WDC WD400BB-32CLBO]
Enabling DMA acceleration for: hdc [FX32OS]
Enabling DMA acceleration for: hdd [ATAPI CD-ROM]
Looking for CD in: /dev/hdc _
and there it totally stops.
I can get it to boot in failsafe mode but then the mouse won't work.
Any help will be appriciated!
