I want to install Knoppix 3.8 on a Dell pentium 2 with a blank hd.
The Company gave away all its old computers, and I went home with a Dell Pentium 2, 128 RAM with a hard drive wiped clean of Windows. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to get into Linux, and the Knoppix distro sounded right for this here noobie.
I downloaded 3.8 and burned a CD, but (of course) it won't boot up--either on the Dell or the XP box. I read about setting the BIOS to look at the CD drive first, and did that. Also I understand that you're supposed to burn an "image" onto the CD, not just the downloaded files...what does that mean? I made the disk with HP RecordNow with the Data Disk setting.
Will there be any problems when I go to install the "image" thingy on my systemless Dell?
Thanks for your help,
