Knoppix boot disk

  1. Hello,

    I am having trouble with my Dell Laptop (insert long story).

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to create a knoppix boot disc.

    I ran a search of Google Groups and came across an earlier thread on this group advising that the disc had to be created through imgburn after downloading the knopppix files for the computer to see the executable files. The previous questioner apparently was smarter than me because he replied 'no problem'.

    I, on the other hand, do not understand how to make this boot disc in this fashion.

    Part of the problem is I am working on a Mac and the subtleties of file manipulation, etc. are defeating me

    I would appreciate a very simple set of instructions to help me get on the right track.

    Thanks in advance.

    (even at ground shipping, the CD was cheaper that the shipping, but I was happy
    to await the CD).

    The BIG issue for boot disks is writing the MBR and pointing to the program to be
