I still think you should download knoppix-std again, i've never had that problem with knoppix-std, after the cd boots and scans my hardware it takes me to the gui, which is fluxbox, but i've never gotten the problem you are having. Another live cd i like is slax, is based on slackware and it's way more compact than knoppix or knoppix std, it's only like 300mb. YOu can also try Suse live -eval cd, i like that one too.

here's a link to slax :
http://slax.linux-live.org/download.php

here's a link to Suse live eval cd, just choose any mirror you like.

I've seen some where how to do it, but i just can't remember right now, go to the knoppix-std site and try to look it up. I think there are some options you can pass on to the bootloader when the cd is booting. just press either F1 or F4 and then read what it saids.

hey if yall not fed up with me i got another question...

i've seen kevin rose from www.g4techtv.com use knoppix to crack a windows log on password...

i have a machine that i had for about a year that i have some really personal stuff on and some mp3's....i lost the password for a while now and ive been trying everything known and nothing...and i really want to save these files...

i seen kevin rose do it on the show one time but when i read the archives...they make no sense to me since im new at it....

anyone got any idea?

We'll there's a treat on the knoppix-std forum that talks about that.
here's the link:
http://www.knoppix-std.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=790
If you want to learn somenthing about the tools that come with std, you might want to search around that forum, also check the documentation that comes with std. By the way i have to warn you that is a bit risky to reset a password if your drive is ntfs.
I've done that succesfully in the past but i just can't remember right now, i haven't used std for ages. I'll boot into std and see if i still remember, i'll get back to you later.

Are you sure you need to hack your password?
In Knoppix(running on the same system) you should be able access your data without it.

You have to be 'root'.

the program you are looking for comes with knoppix-std, just open a terminal as super user. I think you can right-click and then go to terminals and choose super user mode or somenthing like that. then access the partitions. I'll give you better instructions later on, i need to go right now but when i come back i'll give yousome instructions as how to do it.
