    syslinux.cfg

    Hi,

    Please bear with me, this is my first post.

    I have installed Knoppix to my HDD, and I want if to boot with the cheatcode "fb800x600". I have added this to the APPEND line in /mnt-system/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg and
    /home/knoppix/Desktop/KNOPPIX/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg but to no avail. Please help! My Knoppix install is perfect appart from having to type "fb800x600" every time I boot up.

    Thank-you for your time,

    petemaxi.

    If you did a HD installation of Knoppix you have to edit '/boot/grub/menu.lst'. Append at the end of the line "kernel /boot/vnlinuz ..." your wanted cheatcode. By the way, if you know the available resolution of your computer (Laptop?) you may try the cheatcode "screen=...".

    Hi,

    Tried this on every kernel line and the defoptions line but to no avail, it still only works if I explicitly type fb800x600 at the startup screen. Thanks for the suggestions, though.
