Knoppix failed Install
I've got knoppix to install once on the same computer, so this is very fustrating. When ever I try to install, I partiction the disks and I start the installsion. At about 60% or so the install keeps spitting out these errors like:
cp: reading 'usr/share/local/ru/LC_MESSAGES/popt.mo' : Input/output error
Serveral pages of the same errors (but different files), go by and the installsion is complete. I reboot and the boot gives errors and X windows doesn't load. I know its not the CD. I guess its the hard drive. I think I partitcioned them right though. I made a primary swap (512mb) and a primary ext3 (5.12gb) /. Thanks for any help, I really want to have knoppix installed over any other distro.
If anybody can even diagnose the error for me or tell me what it means I'd be grateful.
I know that you said you do not want any other distro instead of knoppix, but when I was going to install Knoppix I went to the channel for them ( in irc, irc.freenode.net, #knoppix) and they said, if you want an installable knoppix, use KANOTIX, it is supposedly a lot faster, and better, when installed to the hard drive :)

Thanks. :D I'll look into this and post back. The reason I reinstalled knoppix in the first place, was because konquerer took to long to load up. Maybe this will work better...
Kanotix is quite nice when installed to harddrive, and if it fails in a similar way to knoppix, you'll know that it's probably the harddrive.
Thank you for the referrer. KANOTIX is indeed quite nice. The install went fine with no problems. I am now running KANOTIX on my laptop. :D
