    hdd install doesn't keep my config

    Hello,

    When i boot using the live CD (Knoppix 2.7) everything goes fine on my Dell D600. But When i install it on Hdd i loose network, usb support language (ok not so important this).

    I have used knoppix-installer with the tow options in configuration : beginner and knoppix, and both have the same end ...

    So how can i set the same configuration as with live CD auto config?

    Or if you have a good tutorial

    Thanks!

    Scott

    I have seen HD installs lose network settings so I add a dhcp entry to /etc/network/interfaces

    auto lo eth0
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    Part of the fun of linux is learning it. A few tweaks here and there and you will be right back to where you were. This is normal that a hd install does not have everything configured.
    To get your network going try configuring the network card in the K menu-->knoppix-->network/internet-->network card configuration. Sometimes you have to do it more than once to get the connection started, at least with mine after a fresh install (dsl modem). Until you see auto lo eth0, that's when I know my network is up.
    What type of usb support are you talking about?
    The lang can be changed in the lilo.conf append line by changing the lang=de or whatever to lang=us if you want english. I think there is another place to change it but I never had to, the lilo.conf change was good enough. Hope this helps.
