Question Knoppix CD hangs in Toshiba Satellite Laptop


Hi all,

I've almost convinced a friend to join the linux revolution, so he burned a Knoppic v3.3 CD to try it out on his Toshiba Satellite laptop.

While booting, it seems to recognise processor, APM, PCMCIA, USB, mouse, soundcard, video, moniter, however... then it hangs indefinately at:
"Scanning for harddisk partitions and creating /etc/fstab..."

Then we booted my laptop with the CD and all was well so the cd should be ok.

Anyone any advice?

There is 1 partition, and it's FAT32.
And yes, it boots fine on another laptop.
