and it happened with both?!

then it prolly has some problems with your hardware.

ok, maybe the burner fucked both the cd's. try burning the iso on another computer and then try.

OK, first off, anything im going to ask here is NOT to insult or flame you, i take knoppix's inability to help you as a personal matter ;) But since i dont know you, im going to have to get all the info i can to help you out.

I have a dell inspiron 8200 that i installed knoppix on, and it worked great (after i got the version with the fixed install script.) This same laptop however, H-A-T-E-D mandrake. It was wierd. It took all the time to install, and it seemed to be installing, but on the first boot, it would tell me that some of the key packages didnt get installed properly, actually it was all of them. I have come to realize that it was a problem with the DVD/CDROM combo. Mandrake 8.2 just didnt jive with my hardware *shrug* But i have honestly never seen Knoppix reject any reasonably modern hardware. So the problem may be with the ISOs, but you seem to have tried 2 unrelated sites, and are having the same problem...

So, riddle me these:

1. how many programs have you burned via ISO?

2. Were there any problems?

3. What prog did you use to burn?

4. Under what OS?

5. Are you trying for an HDD install, or just want to use it as a live distro?

6. What is the make and model of the burner?

7. What is the make and model of the CDROM drive on your lappy?

1st welcome to the board. the 1st computer i ever had was this beast my dad gave me. they called it a "luggable", b/c it had a handle so u could carry it, and it had a bulit in monochrome screen. its WASNT luggable. the best i could manage on it (i was like 7 at the time i think, so i wasnt doing anything fancy) was play some games (tapper is the SHIT!) and some w0rd processing. it ran dos, no idea on anything else.

My very first computer was an Amiga 500, wich isn't working today (don't know how). I was about 5 years old and we got it very cheap since the owner (family member) was getting himself a super modern computer with a Windows 95 (wow). Anyway I used it a lot till i was about 7½ when I got my 450 mhz, 128 sd ram, 7 gb harddrive, etc. it was a compaq deskpro, and some kind of number wich I can't remember, but they use such one at my library (actually they also have a P4, don't ask me why...).

I still remember me sleeping with my computer at night, and fucking it up twice, since I played a lot of games on it. Anyway the first thing I did was to go to C:\Windows\ and start looking, running every excuteable and so, by that time, I really fell in love with them.

good luck with the knoppix :voteyes:

not to be left out. my first computer experience was an apple II, choplifter ruled on that beast. the first computer i got to program with was the vic 20, typing out a 200 line program and running it without saving only then realizing you forgot the last 5 lines on the back of the instructions, whiping out all of your work = big time fun. :lol:
