There's probably just something simple I'm missing, but no matter what option I choose for booting the live CD, I get the same message: "Can't find a Knoppix filesystem. Dropping you to a limited shell." (Boy are they right. The shell is so limited that the screen won't even follow it when the commands reach past the bottom of the screen! Whoops!)
Now isn't this a live CD? Shouldn't I not need any particular filesystem? What small but significant detail am I missing? If I could run fdisk, I could make myself a new filesystem. Is there any way to get to fdisk from the live CD that I don't know about?
It could have something to do with the somewhat unusual system I'm using:
A Sony Vaio PCG-C1X mini laptop. 266mghz Pentium II, 64 megs of RAM, 1024 x 480 display, and a PCMCIA CD-ROM, which caused some problems at first but solved with the pci=off command.
Anyway, anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
