Ok, I finally have gotten around to downloading knoppix. I put in my CD and it shows the graphics but it gets to like a 3rd screen and then just stops while it says "Intializing System Services" anybody, have this problem and found a way to fix it? Please help, this is my first linux experience and it is not treating very nicely!

try booting from knoppix, make a sanwhich, and then watch a tv show. Knoppix usally takes a long time to load. If it is actually frozen when you get back try 3.1 if you using 3.2 or 3.2 if you are using 3.1. And if all that fail suse has a live iso as does slackware
