When I use Knoppix from CD, all run OK...

But after che hdd installation, I can't mount the CD.
I insert the CD in the CDRom, and try to use the mount
command (from root user); I've this error message:
no medium found.

Can anyone tell me what appen?

Thanks, and excuse for my poor english.


PS: During the starting operation, when Knoppix begin, it see
correctly all CD that I've on my PC (a writer and a reader)...

Have you looked in the /etc/fstab (in console vi /etc/fstab) to see if there is an entry for the cdrom, I have two in my system and during install it did not create an entry for the second one. If there is no entry you will have to add the line /dev/hdd /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0 if you have more than one cdrom change the /cdrom to /cdrom1 and mkdir cdrom1 in /. You will have to re-boot and then you should be able mount the cdrom (mount /dev/hdd /cdrom(1) ).

I will try tonight!... :D

What's the "medium"?

The medium would be the cdrom disc that it can not find due the drive not being mounted.
