Cant boot from Knoppix 3.7
Hello people, after reading a bit about Linux (from ex-Windows users, who were only too glad to ditch Windows) I decided to give it a go.
So after a bit of browsing, Knoppix seemed like a good place to start, what with it being able to run off a CD and not needing to be installed on to hard disk.
After dl'ing the ISO and putting on to CD, I tried to boot from it by changing the boot sequence. Only Win XP kept on booting.
After visiting the Knoppix forums (sorry if youve already read this on there), a thread suggested that I dl Smart Boot Manager to configure the PC to boot from the CD drive. So I dl the .exe and put it on to a floppy, and when I tried to boot from it, I get a "non system disk" error.
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong? :(
