Try sudo netcardconfig from a terminal, choose dhcp.
good luck.

One problem is that I've had to go in as failsafe (forgive me...first tiem with Knopix) becuase when in normal mode, it apperently jsut sticks after I press ENTER. No HDD or CDROM activity....only when I use 'failsafe' caN i get Knoppix to boot...on this particular PC i would guess....and even then it complains it can't find a driver for my video card, I don't need runlevel 5 anyways...if only i knew how to get runlevel 3, that would be sufficient for me.

What I need now to do is get Knoppix to detech the NIC after I've loaded in failsafe...any ideas?

Thank you

The cheatcodes should help you get it booted without failsafe. They can be found here.
