both need the additional lang=en Amen to that, I recently did a Knoppix hard drive install and almost went nuts trying to figure out why everything was in German and what I had to do to fix it. One of the cool things about a Knoppix hard drive install is that if you choose the Knoppix type install ...

I've installed Fedora on two computers letting Fedora choose how to format the partition. Auto partitioning on Fedora setups up LVs (logical volumes) for, I believe, the swap file and home partitions so all you need is an empty hard drive partition that's at least 3 gig. Obviously a larger partition...

CD-drive is in use for Live CD, cannot be used for rewriting CD (unless anyone knows of a way) whilst live CD running. I don't know if the tohd=/dev/hda1 cheat code works with Knoppix 3.3 but's available on Knoppix 3.6, 3.7. The tohd=/dev/hda1 will copy the Knoppix CD, not install, to your hard dri...

Remember, sid is bleeding edge and may or may not get security updates like the other two. Thanks for the heads up, I just installed Knoppix to hard drive and setup Debian unstable. After reading this thread I looked around, according to the Debian security FAQ unstable and testing don't get securi...

Could the problem be that you are using /dev/hda3 instead of /mnt/hda3 ?

They don't include it now for legal reasons... being sued is never fun. Knoppix and Mepis have icons that represent mountable partitions on the system hard disk drives. Why would it be illegal to mount my Windoze files while using Fedora ? They are my files on my computer that I wish to access from...

Dig around on www.kernel.org mirrors and you shall find the way. The kernel mirrors were the fastest downloads I could find. Except for Disk 2 the download speeds were in excess of 300kb.
