    Check that you have write access to this file or that enough disk space is available.
    even when I try putting rw switch
    chmod 777cdrom2.loop does not work even as root
    I am not sure to understand what this relates to...
    A little bit of context and feedback on my previous answers will be apreciated.

    If the cdrom2.loop partition device is not NTFS and you got write access granted
    to the partition using the mount -f -o remount,rw ... it shoudl work....

    I don't know if anyone else still cares about this thread, but as I just found it,
    I'll add my 2c.

    1. only root can write:
    Knop4 always does this (only root can write) to the partition with the .iso on it.
    you will find that booting from a CD you can write to it.
    If you have more than one partition, the others will write fine.

    2. .iso filenames:
    I found that my Knop4 knx.iso would never be found unless I did
    bootfrom=/hda1/KNX.iso
    perhaps 4.iso would be less troublesome

    This is the reason for the "bootfrom=.../*.iso" in my menu.lst

    I also have 5.iso for Knoppix 5 on the same partition;
    Is there any way to multiboot Knop4 & 5 with no CD?

    Yes of course, I have 5 iso boots on my laptop... Knoppix 4 & 5, Kanotix, accelerated knoppix, ...
    Just use different path and/or filenames for the various versions of set of files (kernel, ramdisk and iso)
    BTW, the iso file do not need to be called iso, you could rename it with only a letter to avoid
    the upper/lower case problem then just use "bootfrom=.../5" in your menu.lst
    My 2 cts,
