Newbie with knoppix - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi guys, I'm brand new to Linux, and just got the Knoppix disc in the mail. My problem is that when I boot up the disc, everything seems to go right until the main screen comes up.

    Default Newbie with knoppix

    Hi guys,

    I'm brand new to Linux, and just got the Knoppix disc in the mail.

    My problem is that when I boot up the disc, everything seems to go right
    until the main screen comes up. Then a small window comes up and loads
    the peripherals, files and such. Then it says "restoring session" which
    stays on 0%. Then the whole thing freezes up, and I can't get anything
    to work. My mouse is a PS/2 compatible wheelmouse, so I don't think
    that's it. I've tried a number of the Knoppix cheat codes, and that
    didn't help.

    Anybody have any ideas. Any help is appreciated

    I think we need to know your system specs, including what monitor you
    are using. It certainly sounds like Knoppix is barfing on a piece of
    hardware, probably video.

    That's probably it then. Set the protocol to PS/2 instead in your
    XF86Config, and be sure to point it at the right device (ps/2 mice are
    on /dev/psaux, usb mice are on something else).
