    It does sound as if it isn't booting from the correct device. Maybe give the blinking cursor some time, and see what happens. The small CPU on netbooks is going to make things a lot slower. My Eee PC shows a blinking cursor before it boots into the SD card.

    Yeah i gave it some time, nothing...eventually it skipped on and booted to the mem test on the hard drive. Tried not setting it as primary either and just leaving it all default and plugged it in and booted. I used the automatic process to create it in ubuntu, thought that would make a diffrence since i heard the netbooks won't boot if more than 1 partition on a USB, but i checked and the auto usb maker in ubuntu only makes one and i KNOW the knoppix one was one cause i did it by hand.
