    Question Can't load myconfig file b/c of encrypted partition.

    I am running knoppix from a live boot cd. I save my configuration settings to a usb jump drive formated w/ FAT32. When I reboot and type the knoppix myconfig = scan or type the path of config file (dev\sda media\sda) at the boot prompt I receive a prompt to enter a decryption password. Any information on the problem would be great. Thanks

    yeah, i had that problem too when i started out.
    try reformatting your USB drive to FAT, not FAT32 (might work, that's what i did but i don't know if that's what solved it).
    the encryption doesn't apply for config though, i'm guessing you selected "make a permanent Knoppix home directory," if you did, then do it again and make sure you select "NO" when it asks you if you want to encrypt your USB drive with that really long named thing.
