    Is it possible...


    Is it possible to make a knoppix boot floppy? The reason I want this is because for some un-known reason, I can't boot from disks at all... And yes, just in case someone asks, I did change and save my boot order. So, I need to know if it is possible to boot from a floppy.

    Thanks

    When you changed the boot order, you were allowed to change it to cdrom first.
    And you still can't boot with the knoppix cd?
    Have you tried the knoppix cd on another machine?
