workin with knopix

Hi all,
Iím newbie Knopix user,
My pb began when i want to use nessus, I always got : login failed, although I did the right things : starting nessusd then nessus and using root passwd, so thought to reinstall it -nessus- , As I m working From CD and I use VMWARE , I didn't understand how things works,
I downloaded nessus 2.24 in the Windows Partition i.e. C:

My pb is :

-how can i fond the Windows partition, although i did : fdisk -l , I get only one partion sda of 4GB, I know that was made with VMWARE, and I got this message :
/dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table .

-how do I mount the HD (ie C , When I looked in the /dev directory I didnít find any things like hda or sda .....I tired to do :
mount -t ntsf /dev/sda /mnt/wint but I couldnít

I know that i can download these file diretely , but want to understant the pb.

your windows harddisk is probably /dev/hda

So try fdisk -l /dev/hda

When you realise which partition is the windows partition just mount it (and make sure that a mountpoint exists (the directory /mnt/wint is created))
