    Knoppix cannot boot on Asus notebook?

    recently, i hv download the knoppix 3.3...

    My notebook is P4 1.4, 256DDR, 24x CD-rom, and winXP installed.

    so, i follow the instructions, goto bios setup and select boot on cd-rom.
    After that, i put in the knoppix live cd... the following are two method i've tried to boot the knoppix...

    if i made the cd-rom boot first:
    nothing was happed, the cd-rom did run for a minute it seem like something was working behind, but suddenly... it automatically load the windows just like nothing was happened.

    if i disable the floppy and hd except cd-rom and cd-rom boot first:
    a message told me tat it was an invalid system disk, put an valid one and press enter (the message is something like tat).

    I just can't boot the knoppix... what is the problem?

    thx a lot...

    Simple. You don't have a bootable disc. Check the md5sum of the .iso you burned and recheck your burning methods. You can find more info here

    Boot like this:

    boot: knoppix testcd

    If it returns "Everyting looks OK" or somesuch then it must be one of two things:

    1) Burn it again at a slower speed

    2) Try a different cdrom drive

    uhm interesting one

    1) have you tried booting the CD on another PC that you know boots OK from the CD

    2) have you tried to boot on your laptop with a known good booting CD, ie windows XP or other?

    3) with another distro that I had that would not boot I made a boot floppy and booted from that and got the CD running and installed. You can probably do the same with knoppix, but some one more experienced than I am will have to help you, if you cannot work it out for your self.

    HTH
