Just to make sure, when you are in the / directory of the knoppix CD what files do you see? If all you see is a knoppix.iso file you didn't burn the CD correctly. Also what version of knoppix are you downloading, it's the newest version correct? If you have done everything correctly, then I would think you have some kind of unsupported hardware. Perhaps if you list your knoppix version and your hardware, I can look to see if you have unsupported hardware. Also does any other bootable CD boot successfully on your system?

The only file that i burnt onto the CD was the iso file for Knoppix version 3.8
I haven't boot many CDs from my system so i am not sure whether my computer has compatibility issues with the system booting from a CD ...

Sounds like you didn't burn the CD correctly then. Heres an example of how you should burn ISO images to CD.

Yeah, but only a level of extra security you don't need :P I'd rather have enough security and more functionality, than more than enough security at the expense of functionality.

Security you don't need? Right, "I want my data manipulated, and my privacy stolen!" Linux has just as much "functionality" as windows does...the command line. GUI's that run on *nix have come far as well, just look at KDE or Gnome.

I don't know anybody to whom that has happened :P The Security Windows has given everybody I know has kept them away from any kind of problems, until of course they become stupid and download things they shouldn't.
