Installing Knoppix 3.7 on Laptop
Hi, i currently found a toshiba laptop running Win98 SE. I was wondering if its possible to install Knoppix 3.7 on here so i can dual boot them. If so how would i go about this or can anyone show me another site/tutorial where i can find out.
I'm having trouble booting Knoppix from the cd. It freezes and the last thing it says is:
"ACPI Bios found, activating modules: ac battery button fan processor thermal"
Thanks for any help posted.

To make Knoppix boot, you may need to disable ACPI either through the computer BIOS, or by using the cheatcodes available throught the F-keys and other typed entries right before the CD begins to boot.
Here's the latest Knoppix cheatcodes but they might be different from those on the 3.7 CD:
