    a 'noob' question about booting from hd

    first of all i would like to thank all the people involved with Knoppix.

    i got it running without problems.
    i never got suse, rethat or any other working before.


    but now i would like to know how i can boot it with automatic values.

    i always need to type 'knoppix screen=1024x768 depth=24 wheelmouse'
    but before i'm done with typing all that i'm a min later. (not a fast typer)

    so where can i put those values to boot like that automaticly?

    Thanks

    while looking around here it seems that it are X11 settings.

    how can I change those settings in X11?
    i'm really new to this.
    and I would like to learn Linux

    OK, after booting with all your special settings on (from boot: screen with knopppix commands) click the K in the bottom left corner of the desktop.

    Make sure you have a linux formatted disk in the floppy drive (boot disk is ok).

    Then click KNOPPIX and then clickk Save KNOPPIX Config.

    This creates a knoppix.sh bash file and saves it on the floppy saving your desired settings.

    To boot up again with those settings without having to type them every time on the boot: screen, make sure that same disk is in the floppy drive and just type at the boot: knoppix floppyconfig.

    That should do it!

    Good Luck,

    Did it say "failed to send email?" It's been happening to me too. I haven't been getting reply notifications either- something's fishy around here.
