    Probably knoppix is unable to correctly configure some of your hardware. try booting with one of the cheatcodes 'knoppix lang=us noapci or nodma or no???'. Press f2 for a list of cheatcodes.
    Be careful working with NTFS systems like XP, you will have to enable ntfs support ('captive ntfs') if you are going to write to the HD.

    thanks alot guys...but unfortunately after all the detecting thing...it still says some sound module thing is missing there there was something about static-x something...and then it shuts down again...i cant really read it cos it kinda just show the text then went to a blank screen real fast

    tried knoppix lang=us nosmp btw...it took off the error...but still the sound thing makes it unbootable..
