    Knoppix install read error around 80%, install another way?

    Sometime during the copying of files the program starts giving read errors on files, but continues with the install anyhow.

    Is there a reason for this?

    I'm using knoppix 3.6... tried in both DVD and CD-RW drives, same problem either way.

    Can I just copy the whole cd while it's unmounted to a blank ext2 partition, then somehow config the boot sector myself, and adjust my SuSE bootloader accordinly for knoppix?

    SuSE 9.1 personal doesn't have any compiling stuff, and it's such a pain in the ass with all the bullshit dependencies, I want to just use knoppix and mod that for my own purposes... though I did just download the actual debian ISO images

    ANYWAY, PLEASE HELP....AHHH AHH AHH.... heh heh

    -thanks

    Have you tried installing with the nodma cheatcode?
    Also you might want to try the testdisk cheat and check the md5sum.

    Like this?: http://www.knoppix.net/docs/index.php/PoorMansInstall

    Also if knoppix doesn't install try kanotix , it's better for a hdinstall anyway.
