Trying to install Knoppix on a Vista Machine
I just bought a new HDD to apply the Knoppix version of Linux on. I downloaded the .iso from one of the websites (?watch).
The thing of it is is that I went to My Computer (RClicked)Manage and down to Disk Management to create a new volume and set up a swap and new partition. In doing so with the wizard, I received an error message stating " The Operation Failed, due to hard drive not initializing."
I have tried just booting and trying to use only the iso -- No luck
My questions are this:
1. Do I need NT Loader?
2. Boot Disk -- And how do I get one from the Vista box - so far I've been unable to find a way to make one?
3. Do I need FDISK to do the partitioning?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your response. I did try opening the iso then burning it with Nero. Then rebooting. Didn't work
Also Vista was already loaded on an HP Pavillion (2 Hdds- 1 for OS/ other for apps)
I have little experience with working with the Red Hat version of Linux and wanted to beef up on the os. It's been about 5 years since I've messed around with it.SO I'm working a little blind here.
Creating a boot disk from Vista - is not being a happy camper - unless I'm missing the catch
yep. I did trying setting the swap from Vista -thought I'd give it a try. No GO
"The Linux bootloaders (GRUB or LILO) can load your Vista OS just fine" -- Since Vista is already loaded and I don't have the OS CDs -- how do I work around this??
"If you choose to use Knoppix, yes. It's included on the LiveCD. I personally prefer CFDISK (also included) but they do the same thing." re: FDISK
Where can I get the LIVECD?
