Knoppix works with Win 98SE

by Cheng / October 30, 2004 4:14 AM PDT

I wonder if I can run occasionally (for my daughter's homework) Knoppix on my Win98SE, Dell Pentium III with 320Mo Ram and two partitions C and D without messing up my Windows system.
Thanks in advance.

I use Knoppix often and don't mess with the OS installed on the hard disk. For 98, its easystreet since its fat32 and very well supported. I can edit documents and more.

Dear Bob, it is a great pleasure to read from you. I have problems with dual booting under Win98SE and Fedora C 2. I have just reformatted my hard disk and do not have courage to reinstall Fedora. So Knoppix may be the solution.

As my partition D is empty and of 4 Go, I plan to install Knoppix in the D Drive. But how do I boot into the Knoppix? Still booting from the CD or I boot from Win 98 and then go to the D Drive.
By the way, I have read your article and all the links in it. Very instructing! Tonight, it is now midnight here in France, i will asleep being less stupid. Thanks again.

Remember that I seem to know what words to feed the google machine. But I wouldn't have developed it so well if people didn't ask.

Best of luck in your endeavors,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
