    how to remove /boot/knoppix.{img,sh}


    Hi,

    Playing with 'df -h' I found the boot partition to be full:
    Code:
    /dev/hda1              99M   95M     0 100% /boot
    Wondering how this could happen I found the following:
    Code:
    # ls -la /boot

    A while ago I used a knoppix live CD and probably did something wrong...

    Can I just erase the knoppix.* files with
    Code:
    rm /boot/knoppix.*
    or should I delete them using some other procedure?

    How about the other files - are they all necessary?

    Thanks, Dietrich

    Me again --- I just removed them with
    Code:
    # rm /boot/knoppix.*
    and everything still seems to work fine --- Dietrich
