I saw the howto on adding Knoppix to ubcd but even though I followed all instructions I was unable to make it boot porperly. I tested the iso file on QEmu prior to burning it on a CD. The message I get is that it was not found the knoppix file on any device though it is in the /ubcd root directory. It's the same trouble I have when I use the Easy Boot software.
What does "/ubcd root directory" really means?
Is it the root directory of the cdrom, or is it the /ubcd directory. Root directory means /
Also make sure the knoppix file has the prope case. Windows does not care about case, linux does.
If you're adding Knoppix (and not Insert which is found in UBCD Full), you must have a
/KNOPPIX directory with the KNOPPIX file in that. If you're following the directions found here: http://www.sadyc.net/anyCDintoUBCD.html ,Method 2, you should already have a /KNOPPIX directory.
If you're still having problems, please post the following:
1) Version of Knoppix you're running
2) The CDShell line you're using to launch Knoppix.
Yes, I already have the \KNOPPIX\KNOPPIX on \UBCD.
It is just like \UBCD\KNOPPIX\KNOPPIX. The version of UBCD I'm using is 2.x and there's no cdshell.ini nor a \boot. But I tried to the method one on http://www.sadyc.net/anyCDintoUBCD.html and it didnt work. I couldn't test method 2 because there's no isolinux on this version of ubcd.
I named /ubcd root the directory on which I extract ubcd files from ubcd.iso. In my computer this "/ubcd root" is c:\ubcd. I'm runnig windows so there's no way to make a /KNOPPIX. Is this a problem? Should I try to build the iso in linux system?
C:\ubcd (extracted contents of UBCD)
C:\KNOPPIX (extractedc contents of Knoppix) *
* This could also be CDROM:\
Do the following from a command line:
xcopy c:\knoppix\*.* c:\ubcd /s
You will now have the following:
(a few more directories)
\isolinux should come with knoppix.
The \ / buiness between Win and Linux is not
an issue for what you're trying to accomplish.
This is just a guess; I don't have a FAT partition to check this out on, but if your Win partition is not NTFS you may not be creating the KNOPPIX directory in uppercase. This I believe is a requirment. You might need to "inject" the contents of a knoppix CD using a program like WinImage, WinISO, UltraISO, etc.
