    It's on my hda2, called partion magic.

    Could not delete file /mnt/hda2/btmagic.pq/bmabout.pqg

    I've logged in as root, the drive it mounted, the permissions are set. it's on a system restore partintion, which i still don't know how i manged to save on.

    I think i found an alternative, quick solution, i have been seaching for about an hour now on how to save one program of 4.2 megabits (xp bootable, WinXP_EN_HOM_BF.EXE) on multple floppies. I only got on cd drive, and i am using it to run knoppix =(

    Apologies if this is obvious - have you made sure that the volume in question is read/write? By default Knoppix will mount hard disk partitions/volumes as read only. Right click on the volume icon on the desktop and choose unmount from the context menu; right click again, choose properties and clear the read only option on one of the tabs (not running Knoppix/KDE right no so don't have the details); right click once more and choose mount. Now see if you can delete the file in question. Hope this helps.

    Hi deadsoul,

    what is the output of "mount" and "fdisk -l" ? Also "dmesg | less" may give you some hints.

    Ciao Martin

    deleting file

    A lot of y'all will probably object to this, but any port in a storm, right? Have you tried booting into windows and deleting the file?

    ting 100mbps full duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability 41e1
    eth0: Setting 100mbps full duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability 41e1
    mtrr: no more MTRRS avaible (this line repeated 19 times)

    I don't have a windows disk to start from, my comp goes to system recovery on boot, and says i don't have one (but i can see it in knoppix), then reboots and goes back to system recovery.
