"could not find kernal image: linux"

Now when I try to create a bootable Knoppix cd I get this error-

"could not find kernal image: linux"

To create the DVD I used Nero and bcdw(bootable CD wizard) and linked the isolinux.bin file to it( this is the right boot file isnt it?).

I placed all the Knoppix files into a folder named KNOPP34 and made the necessary changes to the isolinux.cfg file so that it points appropriately as so:

APPEND knoppix_dir=KNOPP34

Once again, I did not rename the "knoppix" directory I just threw all the files within the .iso file within the directory "KNOPP34". I then placed this dir. onto the root CD.

Now, bcdw did boot correctly, but like I said when Knoppix tried to boot up I get the error: "could not find kernal image: linux"

Many thanks,

I think you are making this harder than it needs to be. Having looked back over your posts (btw: do not double post) you have this aversion to simply burning the iso image. Go here to see how to crate a disk from an iso.

Im sorry

Im sorry for the double posts, I was just desperate for some answer.

I know I can easily create a bootable disk from an .iso but I want to have 10000 programs on one DVD including Knoppix.

It can be done but I want to know why this error is occuring.
