Knoppix arrested booting...


Don't know it this is the right place for this but it seems to be a hardware problem...

I have a strange problem. I've used my Knoppix v 3.7 cd to boot up all of my PC's at one time or another except for one.

This one boots off the CD, allows me to either press enter or enter some parameters. I just press enter, the CD spins and the boot up process starts but stop right after the os detect my CD drive and then tries to read it. It take a while but it errors out stating that it can't find the knoppix filesystem on the cd. ???

It just booted off that cd so it knows there is something there. as I said, i've used that cd on many different pc's (not just my home ones) and even installed to Hard disk a few time with absolutely no problems.

Any one run across this? any one have any thoughts?

Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

system... DELL P3 550 128Ram
