No, it should boot absolutely fine from the CD you make from the ISO. It's quite large, so you'll need a 700Mb (80min) CD. Don't forget to check the md5sums, and when you've burnt it, open it up in Windows' Explorer and see how many files there are... if there's only 1 file - the iso file, then you've just made yourself a coaster. Burn it as an image, not as a file.

I downloaded the ISO the other day, burned to a CD and it works fine. I didn't need to do any fiddling, just download, burn, boot.

You know how you take copies of CDs onto your harddisk with Nero, I think it saves them as .nrg files? You know you can burn these back to CD? It's the same process, but rather than selecting a .nrg file, you select a .iso file. Couldn't really be simpler!

Nero PDF Documentation... page 24+ details how to burn image files.

Noooo.....

Those files are checksums. When the original ISO file was created (by the nice Knoppix people), they generated this file so that when you download it (the iso) you can check that the version you have is identical to their copy, and thus won't have any unexpected errors. What you do with those is use a program like MD5SUMMER (Windows program) to verify the ISO images.

You might want to consider asking this with a new thread, this has nothing to do with Knoppix and this thread starters questions/problems.
