Just got Knoppix, it only works when it wants to not when I want it to.
I just recieved Knoppix 5.0.1 on Dvd about a week ago. I put it in my dvd player and double clicked it and it said "Insert CD". So I figured that my dvd player probably wouldn't read it. So I restarted my computer to try to get it to work and it wouldn't work like that either. later that night my computer was in hybrid mode and it came up with a screen to start Linux. So, I started Knoppix, I looked around on it for half an hour or so but I wanted to check something on the Windows screen so I restarted my computer and did what I needed to do. Then, I restarted it again to try to get back on Knoppix and was unable to do so. So I restarted it numerous times and never could get it to come back up with the Linux menu. So I gave up on it for that day, and my daughters use the computer during the day and they restart it everytime they switch. The dvd was in there all day and it never did come up with it. So, later that night I restarted the computer and it came back up with it and it worked fine. I played around with it for a little while, even burnt a cd using the cd burner that it comes up with. The next day I got up and turned my computer on and could not get it to work again. It being this close to Halloween, I'm wondering, is my computer possessed? Or am I just missing something here? At this point I'm leaning towards possessed, please help!
