    im runnig 1gig ram, 1.8 amd sempron 3000 , a geforce mx2max 32mbram asus a8s-la mother board

    one 80gig hard drive with windows

    and a 250gig i split in two 100 for linux and the rest for my wifes music and pics
    Mounting a hard drive is not hard at all, it's been awhile since I have booted Knoppix but I think it will place Hard Disk Icons on the Desktop so that you can just click on the Icon and copy the Data there.
    You can use this code to mount from the command line.
    sudo mkdir /mnt/Disk1
    sudo mount /dev/hdax -t ext2 /mnt/Disk1
    *replace /dev/hdax with the correct device, such as sda1 or whatever the actual name is. If you don't know the actual device name, issue this code and post the output here for more help.
    sudo fisk -l
    That is a lowercase L
    If all went well, You'll be able to copy your files to /mnt/Disk1
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
