    A snapshot of the old forum (before the migration from phpBB to vBulletin) would be helpful to repair all the broken links...

    My original post is below:

    I need to run knooppix on a stand alone system without cdrom and without changing the mbr
    nor the single ntfs partition. Using grub4all I can boot the kernel and ramdisk from the xp
    ntfs boot loader but knoppix cannot access properly the ntfs file system to continue the boot...

    1) Did someone successfully have boot knoppix from the ISO file image ?
    If yes how ? The cheat code bootfrom=/dev/hda1/*.iso did not work for me.

    2) Did someone successfully have boot knoppix from a NTFS partition having in its root
    either the loopback file /knoppix/knoppix or the iso file?
    If yes how ? I tried to add the ntfs.o and add some debug in the linuxrc in the miniroot.gz but
    it still doesn't work and I cannot figure it out yet ...
    Please advise, Thanks...
