Well, here i am... i am IN linuxs! I've booted from the Knoppix Cd, and am now looking to plant it onto the partition i made on my slave hard drive! My leacturer from collage gave me detailed instructions on what to do, but i got home, and gave it a try, and i've stumbled.
Basicly, i was ment to go into the Shell konslue, and enter, Knx-hdinstall. And from there on wards, it was a easy was self explanatry. Only, unpon entering this commmand, i just recived the message, bash: /usr/local/bin/knx-hdinstall: permission denied
Any idea's as to whats wrong, and how i get around it?
Almost!... I've now managed to set up my partitions. I've made a 1Gig swap file, and have the remaining 19Gig to put linux on, But, once i leave the partition program, it then ask if i want to use the partition (that i set aside for the swap file) for the swap file, so i click yes, it then says its creating the swap file, when, i get a error message that reads...."An error occurred while setting up swap. Some messages from mkswap: mkswap: swap area needs to be at least 40kB Usage: mkswap [-c] [-v0|-v1] [-pPAGESZ] /dev/name [blocks]"
Ah... Right,... ok... well,... i'l think i'll have to give up for now, and have a word with my lecturer tomorrow! Might even take my base unit in and let him have a crack! ok, well, in the mean time, i'll boot myself back into Xp...
But i'll leave this tread open, and let u know what happens!
There will be a configeration setting (under something like control pannel / boot options / system settings). Once you find the right tab - you can alter the settings so that Windows is the deafault boot and remove the second reference to Windows.
