    Yes installing to the hard drive does change some things, but we should be able to get your other drives working. The drives themselves should actually have been detected fine. Look at the file /etc/fstab in a text editor. You should see all three of your cd's dvd's there. They will look something like this:

    Code:
    /dev/cdrom /cdrom  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
    /dev/dvd /dvd  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
    As long as you see all three devices there, all you need to do is mount the drives.

    You can mount the drives either from the command line or by creating links to them on your desktop. For example If I wanted to mount the cd device listed above I would simply issue the following command from a shell

    Code:
    mount /cdrom
    Knoppix uses autofs so you actually should not have to issue the "umount /cdrom" command to unmount the drive, but having said this autofs will not let you eject the cdrom if you have a /cdrom open in a shell or in Konqueror. Exit from these and type "eject" from the command line or simply press the eject button on your cdrom.

    If you want to put links to your cdrom devices, simply right click on the desktop, select "Create New", select "CD ROM Device", click on the "Device" tab at the top of the box and use the pull down menu to select the proper device (these are the same devices listed in your /etc/fstab file)

    BTW, if by chance you don't have any cdrom devices listed in your fstab (not likely), then simpy run "rebuildfstab" as root.

    This should pretty much cover it.

    Come back here if you run into any more problems.

    From almola to Adam

    After running rebuildfstab, my fstab file look's like this:

    # /etc/fstab: filesystem table.
    #
    # filesystem mountpoint type options dump pass
    /dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /floppy vfat defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
    # partitions found by Knoppix
    #/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=knoppix,gid=knoppi x 0 0
    #/dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 auto noauto,users,exec 0 0
    # Added by KNOPPIX
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=knoppix,gid=knoppi x 0 0

    Then I can only install one cdrom, it is done.

    But I can not install the other two drives.

    When my system is booting I see that knoppix detects the three drives,by name and by links (scd0..1..2).

    I've been tryng writting like root on filesystemtable (fstab) a new line ....

    /dev/dvd /dvd iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0..and creating a dvd dir in the root dir..but the result is ---no medium found---.

    Now I'm queryng your help. Realy I not understand. Sorry..

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Regards..........almola.

    Change the /etc/fstab to this:
    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: filesystem table.
    #
    # filesystem  mountpoint  type  options  dump  pass
    /dev/hda2  /  ext3  defaults,errors=remount-ro  0  1
    /dev/hda5  none  swap  sw  0  0
    proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0
    /dev/fd0  /floppy  vfat  defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022  0  0
    /dev/cdrom  /cdrom  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
    /dev/scd1  /dvd  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
    /dev/scd2  /cdrw  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
    
    # partitions found by Knoppix
    #/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=knoppix,gid=knoppix 0 0
    #/dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 auto noauto,users,exec 0 0
    # Added by KNOPPIX
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=knoppix,gid=knoppix 0 0
    Then as root in a console window

    Code:
    cd /
    mkdir cdrw
    And you now should be able to make shortcuts on the desktop for the devices and be able to access them. note: if the dvd gets detected as the scd2 device then change the order with the cdrw in the /etc/fstab.
