Unfortunately, I don't know how to modify that file. I've never used an OS from the command prompt. I'm using a live-cd version as well so files can't be changed if they need to reside on that disk. As a test, I downloaded and booted from a live-cd of Knoppix and all was fine there. I could read/write from a usb key drive I have, if the file change or driver can be placed there.
If anyone has the time to tell me how to make the change I need to do, I'd appreciate it.
