I wanted to do a hdinstall but I can't even get into the terminal it boots up I hit enter at the boot: prompt

Accessing KNOPPIX CDROM at /dev/hda1...
Creating /ramdisk (dynamic size=46416k) on /dev/shm...done.
creating directories and symlinks on ramdisk...done
starting init process
INIT: version 2.78 KNOPPIX booting
Processor 0 is M II 3.5x core/bus 233mhz

And then it just freezes up one time it loaded one other line then froze I don't know if I downloaded a bad copy or what I downloaded the one that said downloadthis one.iso

I don't know how my computer could be too slow either because it has 64mb ram 2gig HD 300 mmx processor

Thanks but it didn't work it loaded quicker but just froze after bios found power management settings message again.

I don't know what the problem is I think I just might delete linux it's too install
