Re: (Newbie) Knoppix.
I checked Knoppix' web site, which directed to a page with "cheat
codes". I gave the command "knoppix noapic" at the boot prompt. When the
system started, I used "netcartconfig" to get the system to broadcast a
DHCP something or other. Unlike the other computers on my WAN/LAN that I
have tried this Knoppix system on, my daughter's computer could not
successfully get an IP address assigned with DHCP.

This means that Knoppix believes you want to load a kernel named noapic,
which is not what you want ;-) You want the knoppix default kernel and
pass the boot parameter 'noapic' to it.
If I recall correctly you have to say something like
at the boot prompt, but can't test it right now. I think you can press
some key (I think it was F2) to see boot options. Knoppix tells you which
key to press.
Good luck, Robert
