    few questions about Knoppix installed on HD

    I have just installed Knoppix on my hard disk and it is wonderful, but
    still I have few questions.
    I would like to mount my fat partition
    (I have a dual system) in read-write mode. How to do that?
    Under Red Hat I just wrote a mount command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    but there is no such file in Knoppix.
    Also, there is a little problem: if I reboot from Knoppix, the machine
    halts: I need to turn off the power and restart it. Then Lilo shows
    up and I can choose Windows XP or Knoppix correctly. If I shutdown
    from Knoppix, everything works fine except that the machine is not
    automatically turned off. Is this expected behavior?

    Anyway, I am really impressed by Knoppix and I am seriously
    thinking of switching from Red Hat.


    TIA,

    Michele

    You need to check the line for the mount in the /etc/fstab and change the noauto to auto and make sure that rw is in the line instead of ro if it is there (BTW this is how you should have done it in Redhat as well). For the power problems when you get to the lilo screen start type Linux noacpi then enter to pass the option to the kernel to boot without the acpi it is having a conflict with the apm that is being used for the shutdown. If this works then edit /etc/lilo.conf and add the noacpi option to the append line that is already in the file then save it and run /sbin/lilo -v to write the changes to the disk note: this assumes that your knoppix install is called Linux in the lilo screen substitute the with name displayed if necessary.

    Thanks, I will try it (BTW, I was forced to that "escamotage" in
    Red Hat since changing fstab didn't worked, dunno why).
