I have a desktop that I've been using Knoppix 6.2 on for a wee bit, and I've been loving it so far. I also have a ThinkPad laptop with Windows Vista installed as the primary operating system, and I hate Vista with a passion, so I got the bright idea to try Knoppix on it as well.

Everything seems to load fine with the CD, and I get to the Knoppix desktop screen, but I can't access any of my data from the primary operating system. If I plug in my external hard drive, it will sense that, but it's like it can't see my internal hard drive. I booted back into Windows to check; the data is still there, and nothing seems to be amiss. I just can't access it using Knoppix.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening? I'm pretty new to this OS and enjoying it a lot thus far (I've also been reading a lot of posts here - so much useful information and it seems like a friendly community) - hopefully someone can help me.

Thank you in advance,
