writing to the boot disk?
I am new to this forum, and fairly new to linux. Ive looked through the questions and did a search, but cant find the answer to my question so here goes. I recently got a copy of knoppix 4.0.2 and am slowly learning to use it. Ive been able to rescue several crashed drives for myself and friends, it is a handy little tool. I read somewhere(wikipedia i think), that if it were burnt to an rw disk, that it was possible to write to the boot media. So i made a copy on a dvd-rw disk, from the original cd. Actually i made two, one closed session, and one open, not knowing if knoppix would write to a closed disk. Everything works , and im not having any problem writing to the other dvd-rw drive, floppy, or hard drive. But i cant figure out how to write to the boot drive, it keeps writing to the ramdisk. What am i doing wrong, is this even possible, or a misconception by someone. It sure would be handy for having notes, documentation, rescuing data ect. if it is possible. Anyone else tried this, or read anything about it.
