Knoppix on hard drive hanging on boot
I installed Knoppix to the hard drive in the beginner mode (multiuser Debian with Knoppix hardware configuration).
Now while it's booting, the first thing it displays is "Loading Linux", and then it prints periods across the screen and a bit onto the second line before it starts showing the text Knoppix loading screen. Lately it has been hanging during this "Loading Linux" stage when it has periods about halfway across the first line (although it does vary). I can restart it with the power button or Ctrl-alt-del, and it usually loads fine after that, but I'm setting this up as an SSH/FreeNX/SFTP server that I can access from school, and I don't want to burden my parents to make sure it boots up fine after a power loss. Any ideas on what is causing it and how to fix it?
I have it set up to automatically log in, but I'm having trouble getting Azureus to start on login. I put a script file in ~/.kde/Autostart containing "/home/mattg/azureus/azureus" which will start Azureus if I run it from the command line, but when I reboot the computer it doesn't start Azureus up.
