    Hi,

    I have pulled version 3.8.1 down the wire as people say it is such a handy, bootable utility CD for Windows repairs :D

    There seems to be a lot of conflicts on how to burn it to CD so you can boot from it though. Anyone had a success/failure when trying to do this?
    The missus has got plenty of tea coasters otherwise I would have a go straight away :biggrin

    do you use nero? if you dont you should, nothing compaers to it


    put a blank cd in, open nero, cancel the wizard thing

    goto 'Recorder' and sellect 'Burn Image' locate the .iso file, make sure finalise is checked then burn away


    its pretty self explanitory :)

    Ryan,

    As I thought.
    There seems to be a lot of people (from googling) saying you have to adhere to this and that...... :blink

    Thanks

    Just used Nero to burn the ISO image from the Knoppix folder but get the message " The entered block size does not correspond to the image length. Do you want to correct or ignore the problem"

    Can't see why it wont burn the iso :oops:

    We use BARTS for a lot of recovery work at work. Boots from a CD and loads a limited version of XP into memory. You can add other goodies like Ghost into the Distro.

    Works for us :biggrin

    I use bart for certain things too, its great and really customisable (fits on a mini CD too, wallet sized!)
    however i like the feature set thats already available with knoppix, and it helps in those instances that windows just cant find something (if its there, knoppix usually finds it :)

    You might also find this interesting boyce. It a review that our own snoppy51 wrote on a book called knoppix hacks. He was really impressed with it.
