Try with the rear USB ports. Also, using the search function for

Knoppix not found would have found a lot of information about the issue, like:

Hi, I had the knoppix not found trouble but have managed to find a work round. Linux recognises my usb drive as purely /dev/sda.

To fix this inside linux open a terminal window go to the directory where DSL is.

Then type the following:

gunzip minirt24.gz

Then make a directory to mount it too.

mkdir /mnt/dsl

then you need to mount the file.

mount -o loop minirt24 /mnt/dsl

Now you need open the linuxrc file to edit it. I used gedit

gedit /mnt/dsl/linuxrc

find the line that says

test -n "$FOUND_SCSI" -a -z "$NOSCSI" && DEVICES="$DEVICES  /dev/sd?[1-9] /dev/sd?[1-9]

change it to

test -n "$FOUND_SCSI" -a -z "$NOSCSI" && DEVICES="$DEVICES /dev/sd? /dev/sd?[1-9] /dev/sd?[1-9]

save the file

now you need to unmount the file,

umount ./minirt24 /mnt/dsl

now you need to zip it

gzip minirt24

Hey Presto, it works! :D :)

ps-is there any chance that a change like this could be added to the distro so people don't do it themselves?

I found the same problem was resolved in a much easier way:

Rename the KNOPPIX folder to knoppix from within Windows.

It worked for me, but YMMV. Couldn't hurt to try!

Let us know if it worked.
