    HOW TO EDIT GRUB TO BOOT KNOPPIX 3.6..PLEASE HELP

    Hiyall!,

    Could someome please help me on editing my GRUB? I have WinXP (hd0) and Knoppix3.6 (hd1,0) and Fedora Core 3 (hd1,1). I was using WinXP and Knoppix first and it was using the LILO bootloader. When I installed FC3 it overwrote the LILO and used GRUB as its default bootloader.

    I can't boot my Knoppix now because the command in the GRUB is the same as the one for WinXP (root verify, chainloader +1). I neec your help because I still want to use my Knoppix 3.6. Please Help!!

    Try this:
    example:

    title Knoppix
    root (hd1,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.6 root=/dev/hdb1 ro ramdisk_size=100000 lang=us apm=power-off hda=scsi hdb=scsi hdc=scsi hdd=scsi hde=scsi hdf=scsi hdg=scsi hdh=scsi nomce vga=791
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.6

    ** change /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.6 and initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.6 to the kernel image you want to use(check in /boot).

    Shah,

    Thanks very much! It worked! Problem now is that the mouse is not working (but it is working when I use the knoppix CD and when I boot expert26). Could you please help on what settings I need to change? Thanks again.

    Sometime the mouse doesn't work on certain kernel version. Check if it work on kernel 2.4.

    Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and add this lines:

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Serial Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "Microsoft"
    Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
    Option "Emulate3Timeout" "70"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "PS/2 Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
    Option "Emulate3Timeout" "70"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "USB Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    EndSection

    If that doesn't work, boot using cd.... and copy /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 from ram to hdd and replace.
