burning IN knoppix


1 CD-rom / Burner in KNOPPIX

I'd like to burn WITH this cdrom.

I also have two harddrives installed. Both W-XP.

I want to save information from one to the other or burn a CD without buying anything else.

What is a newbie to do? I tried umount /mnt/cdrom under root.

Thanks for any help,

Newbabee

Let me restate your question to make sure I understand it properly:

You have 1 cdrom drive which is also a CDRW, from this CDROM drive, you are booting Knoppix. After which you want to remove the Knoppix CD, and place a blank CDR/RW in the drive and burn stuff onto it.

If that is the case, I do not think it's possible. Instead you'll have to actually use the HD install from the knoppix CD to install the bad boy, THEN you can use it to burn...

Other options would be to get a floppy based distro and burn with it, Setup an almost diskless boot setup with NFS (that'd be tricky as all get out though) or just install a small distro actually TO the HD, and then run it.

Cool

That was a perfect restatement.

So, no go for me. ;(

What about remounting one of the harddrives to be able to write to it? I just need to save 500mb from one of the harddrives. Both are 40gb'ers. And both are fat32.

Any possibilities there?

Hmmm... You've got me thinking, and I don't know if this'll work, but see if you can follow me and give this a go:

Boot up with Knoppix, mount up any given partition at /mnt/fat32, then:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/mnt/fat32/knoppix.iso

Once that finishes:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/fat32/knoppix.iso /mnt/knoppix
chroot /mnt/knoppix
(eject the disk by CTRL ALT F2, eject, and put in the blank)
cdrecord dev=....

?

I don't know if that'd work, and you will surely have to tweak some of those directories, as the root of the knoppix CD is (I don't think) actually setup as a / partition.

If I've confused you, or this is all 'latin' to you, don't worry about it, and just disregard.

If you've got a floppy drive, I strongly suggest looking at one of the floppy distros:
http://floppix.ccai.com/
Or just search on google.com/linux for "floppy distro"

Cool
