    Booting from a thumbdrive


    Hello,

    I just burned an ISO of Knoppix 6.2 onto my thumb drive. The system recognized it to boot from it by I'm stuck on how to proceed further.

    What I see is, I'm guessing, is distribution information and I'm left with a prompt that just reads.

    BOOT:

    I'm stumped on what to do from there. I have a little Linux background but have worked with it in a while.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Hello Again Ed,

    Sorry I don't have experience with this distro. I am very confident though that the others can help you find the solution to this issue.

    Nice meeting you!

    Thanks nujinini,

    That's OK. I confident that someone will be able to help. I don't think it's a big issue just inexperience on my part.

    Have you tried just pressing the enter key at the boot prompt?
    Also what size of a thumb drive are you using?

    A much easier way of installing Knoppix to a thumb drive is to use Unetbootin.
    When using Unetbootin you just choose other for the OS you want to install and point it to the Knoppix iso file.

    You can also read how to use Unetbootin from my blog page here;
    Ubuntu 4 You: UNetbootin - Boot Distros From Flash Drive

    I also have tutorials on dual booting a thumb drive using Unetbootin.
    Just do a search on my blog. I have numerous articles on this subject.

    Good luck!
