If you can read the CD from win95, try a poorman's install..
1. copy the KNOPPIX folder from the CD to your HD
2. reboot the computer without the cd in the drive (use the floppy)
3. see if the boot floppy will detect the KNOPPIX copy on your HD
Some older cdrom drives just dont like to read cdr's, unless
the windows drivers are handling the hardware.
( one of my laptops is flaky reading or booting cdr's EXCEPT when I'm
running w2k, and then it's 100% copy..perhaps the buffering helps.)
You may need to try the boot option fromhd=/dev/hda1
My boot disk usually finds the KNOPPIX folder all by itself.
