When I boot from liveCD (slax & knoppex, same problem) I get the startup screen. When I go forward whithout a command, I get fail & error messages. I tried to startup when using the command for no hardware detection but the same errors still occur.

With knoppex the error only occurs when I startup with no hardware detection. Otherwise I get the penguin on a black screen and my computer totally freezes.

Computer spec:
1.33ghz AMD(athlon)
256mb ram
Asus video card gforce 5700
Asus motherboard
regular sound card

hit f1 or f2 for more options before the 10 second timeout. maybe try different cheat codes/boot options. found these;

what version are you trying to run? can you decipher or write down the error code?

it may be that neither of these distros will run on your hardware. it may be easier to just try another distro. these are 2 completely different based distros. slax is slackware based. knoppix is debian based.

try PCLinuxOS. it's mandrake based. or ubuntu or mepis. these are debian based but may work.

probably hanging at detecting your video card or maybe nic card or modem.
