I tried another poor mans install using the same methods that worked on another box. The kernel would not boot no matter what partition and grub entry was used. The error was 'file not found, error 15'. The box is a dual boot, win 98se and opensuse 11.3 32bit os. The knoppix version is 6.2 dvd iso. I mounted the iso and copied the files from it. All the knoppix files were listed in the iso. Could the iso be corrupt? The box does not have a dvd burner.
