    Hi. I'm a total newbie to the exciting world of linux . I downloaded Knoppix 6.4.4 and burnt it on to a CD But when I boot off the CD, in my laptop, I get a black screen with multiple options like documents, multimedia, ... but not the classic desktop interface
    Can you people kindly help me in getting the desktop interface?
    Thanks in advance
    uhm, oops.
    you have downloaded the Ariadne version, it is aimed at "blind" persons, try for one named knoppix only.
    knoppix DE is the German language version, knoppix EN is the English.

    especially these two parts
    http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Download..._I_download.3F

    Ps
    you can still get regular knoppix by typing knoppix at the "boot:" prompt and hitting enter, downside is you have to remember doing it every boot.
