The problem is that the kernel has grown beyond the size
of a standard 1.4MB floppy diskette. It may still be
possible to boot using two diskettes, but I have not
yet looked into this possibility---look through the
"Knoppix" menu and see if you find anything there.
The old procedure with a single floppy will certainly
not work any more.

This is doomed to failure, because the kernel on Knoppix3.0
is different from the kernel on Knoppix3.4. This should work
however, if you use the Knoppix3.4 CD to boot the Knoppix3.4

My advice is to burn Knoppix3.4 and use the CD to boot the hard disk image,
with the boot option you have written above. Once you have booted,
you can remove the CD from the tray. If you have trouble with knoppix26,
