    Knoppix Help

    Hi all, I've just recently started booting my pc using the knoppix cd. I liked what I saw and have decided to stick with the system. However there is one big problem. I have read several tutorials on installing the system to hard-disk and any of the instructions listed always say must have root privelages. But every time I log in as root the system claims I need to enter a password, but I never set a password for root. Does anybody out there have any idea how to fix this.

    YE GODS the wonders of google...

    unless the password isn't set, which I'm sure you've tried, it seems that you've at some point locked yourself outta j00r system...
