    Unable to run Knoppix exept in basic shell


    I am unable to run knoppix on my laptop other than in basic shell;
    1. Knoppix cd boots;
    2. Splash screen appears;
    3. I then get the following output:
    Code:
     Welcome to the KNOPPIX live Linux-on-CD!
    
    Scanning for USB/Firewire devices... Done.
    Enabling DMA acceleration for: hda           [IBM-DJSA-210]
    Enabling DMA acceleration for: hdc           [TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-1902B]
    Looking for CDROM in: /dev/scd0
    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry.
    Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
    Press reset button to quit.
    
    additional builtin commands avaliable:
            cat       mount          umount
            insmod    rmmod          lsmod
    
    knoppix#
    how do i get Knoppix to see hdc as the CDROM drive?

    Thanks;

    I've managed to enter Knoppix in failsafe mode, which works fine;
