    Hi and Welcome !

    Are you using Debian or Ubuntu? Ubuntu 5.1 is very old and not supported by Ubuntu Team. I would suggest you to install latest version, 8.04 Hardy Heron.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    AFAIK, Debian hasn't released 5.1 version yet. Could you post the output of this
    Code:
    cat /etc/debian-version
    Its not recommended to install Knoppix. You should use it as LiveCD only. Linux Mint ( make sure to download/install latest version ) is good choice.
