No Knoppix

The 2004-02-09 version of Knoppix ( doesn't seem to want to play nice with my computer. It's probably something to do with Nero's burning of the CD; if it's as good as its proofreading, I've got no chance. A couple of days ago, when writing over a CD-RW, Nero kindly warned me that I might loose some data. Yes, loose, not “lose”. As in “My shirt is quite loose.”, “Did you lose weight?”.

I'm redownloading the previous Knoppix version, 2003-11-19, using eMule (, which tells me I have another forty hours of downloading to wait. Why was it that so few people use Linux...?
