    I had the same problem. I routinely boot various Dell/Compaq/HP machines, using one CD-R (a TDK) I burned a few weeks ago. I just had another system with this problem, kept retrying over and over, as eventually that seems to work.

    I just tried using 'nodma' and it worked miraculously, first try.

    the optical drive is a Hitachi/LG GWA-4166B.

    Also, to above post: Live CDs lock the optical drive so you can't take the CD out. Just restart and go into the BIOS or Boot Menu and you can open and close the drive.

    Edit: I just tried it again to be sure. 'nodma' has fixed my problem this time.

    Ah well, this thread seems to match my problem more.
    I already wrote here http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...=115370#115370
    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    In short: I too get "Can't find file System"-errors, not only with knoppix, none of the cheat-codes worked.

    HAVE PHUN!

    Hi bpnoel,
    I still have the same problem with nearly every Linux Live-CD, but a short time ago someone recommended Ubuntu, as the new version 7.10 is available now.
    I tested the CD (which is a combined install and Live-CD) and it worked with no problems.
    It's using the 2.6.22-kernel, maybe you can use Ubuntu instead of Knoppix?

    Hope that helps!

    HAVE PHUN!

    Without more details (you didn't give us much to go on), it sounds like a bad disc. Is it pressed or burnt? If burnt it was likely burnt at high speed and that is very likely the source of your problem. This is the major reason I advise against buying a copy of a Linux CD - the seller is likely out to make a buck off of others' work and mass produces the discs as fast as he can (and often on low quality media, but even expensive media doesn't help fix high speed burn issues). It is well known here that high speed burns often cause this problem. It is also strange that you would have bought a copy of 3.6, that is a very old version of Knoppix (will not even support some modern hardware that you could have). I can't find an exact date for 3.6, but 3.7 came out in 2004! And it might not even have everything that you need for your class (again, you didn't give us much information on what you really need for your class). My advice would be to download, by BitTorrent, the newest version of Knoppix, check the md5 sum, and then burn it slowly as an image, as explained in the downloading faq.

    Try this cheatcode also:

    linux ide2=0x180 nopcmcia

    It works in some systems where you get that error

    It is possible that knoppix 3.6 just does not have driver support for your hardware, especially if you have a newer system, you should probably try the latest knoppix (5.1.1)
