from a cd, the bios must know about it. Enter the Bios and make the proper adjustment to the boot order, choosing your CD/DVD drive as the first device.
Hello, I have downloaded the Knoppix CD and have only reviewed it once in several months. It will not boot up on my XP system from a cold start anymore. If I recall there is a setting in bios or msconfig that may be necesary in order to start up the disc. When I load the CD and start my computer cold it will not pull up the Knoppix. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Daniel
