Knoppix can't find filesystem

I'm thinking about trying out Linux, and Knoppix seemed a safe and easy way to do that (instead of creating new partitions, installing a completely new OS etc.)

Downloaded an ISO, burned it to cd, booted up, and after some messages I got this:
Unknown bridge resource 2: assuming transparent
...and after that:
can't find Knoppix filesystem, sorry
which left me with a text console (?).

I could only find this on the problem:
356: # Give control to the init process.
357: echo "${CRE}${BLUE}Starting init process.${NORMAL}"
358: rm -f /linuxrc
359: exit 0
361: else
362: echo "${CRE}${RED}Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry.${NORMAL}"
363: echo "${RED}Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.${NORMAL}"
364: echo "${RED}Press reset button to quit.${NORMAL}"
365: echo ""
366: echo "Additional builtin commands avaliable:"
367: echo " cat mount umount"
368: echo " insmod rmmod lsmod"
369: echo ""
(from )

oes anyone have any idea on how I can get this thing running properly?

(Sorry for posting this here, but the Knoppix forum is inaccesible. They moved it to a new location, but haven't updated all the links inside the forum yet. (at least for me it was impossible to post or search))

Seems to me an incorrect burned CDRom (but not sure...).
See the Knoppix site (Google...). See the FAQ. Check with md5 sums (described there too). My Dutch HCC CDRom works OK.
