I have a 64Mb, Celeron 400 Hi-Grade laptop.  DSL freezes after autoconfiguring devices...if I go into Expert mode, text disappears off the bottom of the screen.

I *know* this distro works, it does brill on my desktop. WOuld love to get it going on the laptop too.  Any suggestions welcome!

Perhaps try "knoppix noauto" or "knoppix noapm"?

No go with either of those I'm afraid.  Failsafe also stops after autoconfiguring I discovered.

try 'knoppix noscsi'

noscsi got me nowhere either.

A thought of mine: just after it autoconfigures, it seems to call up the floppy drive.  Is it expecting a disk?  Should I try putting one in, or disabling the floppy drive with a cheat code?

Oh, I ought to add that I searched the Knoppix archives - turns out several people have had this problem, but so far as I could see there have been no solutions I haven't already tried.

How 'bout pushing Ctrl-C on your keyboard.. thats what I use to skip the network config when i'm not on the network.
