    Can't Find Knoppix Filesystem

    Hey guys.. I just found out about Knoppix..

    I downloaded the ISO and burned it hoping it would work... however, after some time it'll just go to a screen that says:

    "Can't find Knoppix filesystem..."

    I tried booting from a floopy, downloading and making a new CD but it's still the same thing. Could it be because my only drive on the computer is formatted to NTFS? (I'm running Win2k)

    Thanks to anyone who can help [/i]

    Your CD may be currupted. Have a look in the downloading FAQ about how to check your CD.

    Nope...

    The CD drive that's on the computer that Knoppix doesn't work on is the one I used to burn the ISO.

    Just must be the NTFS thing..

    I have the same issue

    I have the same issue with my IBM Thinkpad A20M. I have MD5sum checked the image to ensure it wasn't a corrupted download. The image works fine on my other systems but it locks on my laptop. Here is the exact response I get:

    <
    Accessing KNOPPIX CDROM at /dev/scd0.../modules/cloop.o: init_module:
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry.
    Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
    Press reset button to quit.
    >

    I have even tried the 'expert' boot option as well as making a floppy boot disk with the same error. I know the CD drive is good because I run Mandrake on it currently. I have a second partition on the laptop that I would like to install the KNOPPIX on but I'm stuck at this point. Any assistance would be appreciated

    Oh, one more thing, this has happened since ver 12-12-2002, the prior one, 12-10-2002 did actually make it to command level but could not boot the GUI. I could go back to the older version and see if I can do a HD install from that but I'm worried that it will have the same problems with the CD as I'm having now. Again, thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Pace
