    You can't do that..you have to set your BIOS to boot from your DVDROM.

    1: Download the Knoppix DVD as an ISO image

    2: Write it to a DVD as an image with cdrecord or KIIIB (In KIIIB Click "Tools" then "DVD" then "Burn DVD Image"

    3: Set your BIOS to boot from the DVD drive first (Delete key during post, select "Basic CMOS Features" then make sure the first boot device is your DVD drive)

    Wherever you got the DVD from, ask them to tell you how to load the linux distro. If it came with a magazine or something, there usually will be instructions on how to load it.

    Or you could find a friend who has a CD or DVD recorder and get them to burn it for you, as was said before, you need to extract the iso by selecting the Burn as Image option in nero or other software.

    You could always upgrade to a CD or DVD writer, i mean a reasonable DVD writer can be bought for US$60 or less.
