    Default Knoppix - modules.conf - edit???

    Hi,

    I wanted to edit /etc/modules.conf file so I could make my Irda port
    working.
    Soon I found out that its not possible (?)because its on cd = read only.
    Am I wrong or right? Is there any other way to do it.

    Change whatever you want
    Unmount it.
    Burn it!

    This may not work as you think ... iso9660 is a read only file system
    and just plain doesn't know how to do a write operation.

    You may have to copy the files to a RW medium, edit them, remake the
    ISO and re-burn. This is only a guess though ... I've tried the first
    process and it didn't work, I haven't tried the second. I always get
    confused with how I should get the boot sector. This is on my to-do
    list the get working though!

    What about making an image and placing it on a Server?
    Boot on LAN?

    Copy the whole data from th CD to an ext2/3 loop_image?

    This is a bit misleading, although not necessarily incorrect. The normal way
    to do it is to:
    1: copy the files from the CD or ISO image mounted locally to another
    directory
    2: Edit the files in that new directory as needed
    3: Use "mkisofs" to create a new ISO image with the appropriate options
    to select the boot file, file-system, volume label, etc. from that
    directory.
    4: Burn the new ISO image to a CD.
