Unhappy Problems booting from Koppix Live CD

Hey everyone,

I'm pretty new to Linux. My friend from school/work showed me Knoppix. So I downloaded the ISO and made a fresh copy. Its boots up fine on my Desktop, but when I try to boot it on my Laptop it always resets itself when it looks for the FireWire/USB devices (Its the first green bar that goes across the screen during bootup). I dont know why it crashes there, it boots fine on my friends laptop. I have an HP Pavilion ZD7000 running XP Pro if that means anything.

Anyone know what might be causing this??

umm...whenever Knoppix messes up its usually a mystery to even the wisest of men.

http://www.knoppix.org/
http://www.knoppix.net/

Someone at those sites might be able to provide insight into your problems.

I'd say there's maybe issues between Knoppix and your USB/Firewire devices, they haven't reached an understanding

Well, Knoppix better not screw up on me. I have been downloading the Live DVD for the past 4 days or so. (been pausing). It's a 4GB download!

No, I mean your USB/Firewire ports on your machine rather than anything plugged into them.

Probably bad firmware or something, Knoppix have forums, try them.

that site is not good (i.e. old). Knoppix is at at 4.0 or something now.
