    I dled and burned the iso or so I thought. Well I have the file on my hd now and am trying to figure out what file I should burn. Should I burn the entire folder or just a single file? I have a boot.img file, KNOPPIX file (no extension) that is 700,000+ kb. Which one of these, if any, should I burn. Help a n00b out here.

    you sure burn the .iso...

    open your recording software, and burn the .iso onto a CD... not the .iso file...

    the .iso file is a image of the CD... So, your recording software will be able to create a CD based on the .iso file. Then boot from the CD, you should then have Knoppix running

    Thats the thing I don't have a file maked .iso. If I did I wouldn't be asking this stupid question. I thought maybe I should burn the KNOPPIX (no extension listed) file but I wasn't sure.

    that is strange... Didn't you download the thing as a single iso file? or did you actually got a .tar/zip file and you decompressed it to get what you have now?

    The problem is you have file extension hidden
    To to View->Folder Options->View
    Look for "Hide file extentions for known file types" and uncheck it then click OK
    Now you should see the file extensions for all the files and you can see which is the ISO file and burn it easily

    Go to http://www.knoppix.net/get.php and the ISO from there
    You shouldn't have downloaded a ZIP file, it should be 1 ISO and to verify the file is right 1 MD5 file to which you need the md5 program to do the verify

    I redled it and burned it correctly this time, but when it goes to load it says that some memory process is currupt.
