Unusual install error question ?? (knopppix-hd)

I had reinstalled knoppix to hd with some 10-20 or 30 errors. To check them what should I do ?? How to fix the same ??

Yesterday, I ran apt-get update and updated fully . How to check whether my os is problem/error free or how to upgrade to knoppix 3.8 or 4.0 from debian repositories. I think its apt-get -u dist-upgrade ...... I also wanna know whether there is some command like "tail -f /var/log/messages" to see the error logs in knoppix.

Regards and thanks in advance...

Without the errors its hard to help you.
I will say this...since you are reinstalling...format and start from scratch.
If the installer is throwing errors try burning a new disk makeing sure before hand the iso is not corrupt....also slow down your burn to stop read errors with the installer.
