    How to start Knoppix under dos using grub4dos

    Hello everybody,

    I'm trying to boot Knoppix under dos with grub4dos. The first thing I've done has been to unpack the iso image inside c:\menu\linux\. This is the situation inside the folder c:\menu\linux :

    c:\menu\linux\

    menu.lst

    Title Knoppix
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /menu/linux/knoppix/boot/isolinux/linux
    initrd /menu/linux/knoppix/boot/isolinux/minirt.gz

    grub.exe

    c:\menu\linux\knoppix\boot\isolinux :

    isolinux.cfg

    DEFAULT knoppix
    APPEND ramdisk_size=100000 2 toram lang=it vt.default_utf8=0 apm=power-off vga=0x311 initrd=minirt.gz nomce quiet loglevel=0 tz=localtime
    TIMEOUT 50
    # TOTALTIMEOUT 20
    # KBDMAP german.kbd
    PROMPT 1
    F1 boot.msg
    F2 f2
    F3 f3
    DISPLAY boot.msg
    LABEL knoppix
    KERNEL linux
    APPEND ramdisk_size=100000 2 toram lang=it vt.default_utf8=0 apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minirt.gz nomce quiet loglevel=0 tz=localtime

    it is able to make the boot,but it starts immediately,ignoring the boot menu and the settings written inside isolinux.cfg. Why ? Thanks.

    isolinux and grub4dos are different bootloaders. Both of them have got individual configuration files. grub4dos reads menu.lst whereas isolinux makes use of isolinux.cfg. Since you are using grub4dos you have to write all settings in menu.lst. isolinux.cfg won't be read at all.

    I suggest that you append the cheatcodes to the line specifying your linux kernel.
    Code:
    kernel /menu/linux/knoppix/boot/isolinux/linux ramdisk_size=100000 2 toram lang=it vt.default_utf8=0 apm=power-off vga=791 nomce quiet loglevel=0 tz=localtime
