How do we boot the Knoppix CD from the CD-ROM ? Should I do some configuration and if yes how to do it ? By the way I have not yet received the Knoppix CD. I had to make a copy of the knoppix thing from a friend ! Is that the way the despatch and Admin department works ?

Usually, there is no need to configure at all.

i think the configuration that was asked about is wrt boot settings, in the bios. if that's the case, the thing to do is go into the bios and change the order/priority of the various bootable media; usually hd will be first, and if that's the case you should have cdrom before it and it'll boot. most likely the person from whom you got the knoppix cd will know this kind of thing.

as for what we need to do with it, haven't the faintest clue... i would do well to read the tutorial letter though! winking smiley
