    This system runs XP2SP2, FWIW. Its weird, grub line-completion shows evrything in the root, just one(!) file in most other (1st-level) subdirectories, none in some ?!? Never mind, I am glad I got it working at all.

    Read Only

    Seem that running knoppix as an ISO on the HD, the drive is read only. Makes sense. How can I make VMWare play nice and let me edit files?

    existing Knoppix VM 5.1.1

    Hi,
    I have a VM that boots Knoppix 5.1.1 from Virtual Hard Disk linux formatted (not from the CD). I followed the procedures to install VMwareTools in that OS with no success. I run ok the VM provided by Giles. Is there something that I can use from that virtual machine to patch my knoppix installation.

    Thanks.

    Code:
    ...Could you assist me with the propoer syntax for mounting the CD for your build. I am using the VMPLAYER and it will load the 501 but cannot find the location to the CD. In your notes you say to point to the location but I can't figure our how to do that. Thanks in advance.
    "PS: Please update the cdrom image path to match the location of your Knoppix 5.01 CD or DVD iso file."
    Since this is not the first time I get the above question in a private message, I will reply to it in the forum below:
    In the vmk511.vmx text file you will find the following line:
    ide1:0.fileName = "C:\boot\knoppix.511\KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso"
    You may want to change "C:\boot\knoppix.511\KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso"
    to match the path and filename of your knoppix iso file. The cd or dvd iso file is obviously
    not included in my zip and will have to be either downloaded or created from a Knoppix cd/dvd.
    Hope this helps,
    Gilles

    Hi Henri, You are absolutely correct and I apologize for this. I got a typo when creating the url...

    The correct file is: http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/vmk511_36983.zip

    Best Regards, Gilles
    What does this zip file contain and what can I do with it? Sorry if I missed something somewhere in this thread.

    Knoppix 5.2 minirt update for iso boot

    Hello,
    Please find below the link to the Knoppix 5.2 update of the iso boot minirt:
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/minirt_520.gz
    Have fun, and please provide some feedback...
    Gilles

    PS: interestingly, once booted I can now remount /cdrom2.loop (ntfs) as rw,
    but I still cannot write to it. Something mysterious to me with fuse and ntfs-3g.
    PS2: I am still working on the Knoppix 5.2 vm with vmware 6 beta build 42757.

    Hello,
    I believe that the ntfs format have changed from XP to the server version and that grub cannot handle that new ntfs format.

    is there anyway to boot the knoppix iso other then the CD, and USB, just like doing within NTFS, but when I do that I cannot
    extend the partition that the Knoppix is running in. The CD works the best way but then you have to have someone at various locations to touch the CD, trying to do this without relying on someone at these locations, because of time difference etc. Hope this makes some sense

    Thanks
