[debian-knoppix] PS/2 mouse and hard drive question

Hi all,

I am running Knoppix 3.1 to introduce Linux to my friends and expect to have advice from the List on following problem and question.

1) PS/2 mouse
I ran Knoppix 3.1 on a Windows PC and it did not detect the PS/2 mouse which ran without problem on Windows environment. I plugged in a USB mouse then it worked. I tested another PS/2 mouse with the same result, not being detected. I ran Xconfigurator and following command prompted:

bash : Xconfigurator : command not found.

2) Hard drive
In order to protect the hard drive of a Windows PC avoiding a mishap, I disconnected its power cable. Could disable detecting hard disk from BIOS has the same effect. The latter arrangement is more convenient without opening the PC box.

Thanks in advance.
