New Knoppix install changed on me!!
So when my machine boots into terminal mode, is there any way I can get it into the GUI, or must I completely reinstall and try again?
Thanks for your time and help!!

If that doesn't work, please post more details about your hardware.
Which version of Knoppix are you using?
What is your video card?
If you are using Knoppix 4, the X configuration (which allows you to get the GUI working) is in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.
If it's Knoppix 5, then look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

Printers are configured through the cups server..there is a kde printer configuration gui in knoppix..or alternatively you can go to localhost:631 in a web browser. It is a better and more accurate way to configure a printer in any form of linux that uses cups....you can even update the printer drivers over the web...or search for obscure ones. The beauty of this setup is that you can configure samba shares at the same time or just specify local printer if that is all you need. I have had much better luck with linux drivers than most bloated windows printer drivers....especially the crapware, clutter and excess dlls that they through at your registry! The worst of the lot are the windows printer drivers that come from HP..some of them are 50-60 megs, which is rediculous!
