hello everyone, as you can all see im a newbe here..
Now i have a little problem..I have just finished downloading Knoppix-STD 3.4 and i have no idea on where to start..
i am currently running Windows XP and decided to make a change and try linux for a start...
I have a 40 gig harddrive with 2 partitions, one with 20 gig and the other with 20 gig (40 gig in total)..
I've read that the Knoppix-STD is a "Live CD" in which it boots stright into Knoppix as soon as you restart..
I've downloaded Knoppix and saved it to my desktop, I see it there as a zip file(winrarr) its stated "KNOPPIX_V3.4-2004-05-17-EN.ISO". now i've been reading about on other forums(this is the one that makes sense) and i've come up with alot of ideas on how to use it..
Well let me explain step by step on what i've been doing..
I downloaded it.
Its saved to my desktop its 689 MB (723,064,832 bytes)
I burned it as a CD-ROM(ISO) with nero onto a CD-R 700 MB 80 Min CD
other forums say that i have to burn it as a iso image..the only thing that im not too sure about is if i should burn it as the zip file with winrarr or if i should extract it to another folder and burn it...
when i put it into my CD-R drive i was told that it should have automatically started booting into knoppix but it just skips it and goes stright into Windows XP....
Please if some one can help me out or even correct me to what i've been doing wrong is greatly apprechieated.....
