Okay here is my Proc summary: Get: http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/woody/main/disks-i386/base-images-current/basedebs.tar Partition your storage medium. Make you filesystems. I still stick with EXT3, but XFS is a good option provided you compile XFS into a kernel. Then mount your "system to installed root" on "/sysimage" Then mount all of your other partitions relative to "/sysimage" "/sysimage/boot ; /sysimage/usr ; /sysimage/var" etc...\ Make a directory "/sysimage/basedeb" and copy the tar there or just D/L it there. From "/sysimage" do "tar xvf basedeb/basedebs.tar" Also from "/sysimage" do a "dpkg-deb extract var/cache/apt/archive/allpackages-1-at-time.deb ." I am developing a script to do just that, but nothing bulletproof yet. Meanwhile a for each loop should do. Then when all is done doing the extracts: "cd /sysimage" "chroot . bin/bash" First things first after this: "dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg_1.9.21_i386.deb" You might need to create a a few things to work it from there... If "/var/lib/dpkg/status" has to exist and be "valid" first, make one that looks like this: Package: libc6 Status: install ok installed Version: 2.2.5-6 Then goto: "http://www.linuxworld.com/story/32607.htm" Everything works from there. Then GET THEE AWAY FROM LILO. GRUB is ONLY THE WAY TO GO. Peter Whysall and I made a good document only installing KNOPPIX before "knx-hdinstall" It gives you a clear and concise way to install "grub" using knoppix and "grub-install" When you get to this point you shouldn't have even installed a kernel yet. Make a good /etc/apt/source.list, include main archive for unstable... Do this: "apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.21-2-<arch>" Make the menu entry and restart the machine. Well it's brief but enough to help. Let's hope this helps. > thanks a lot! i love knoppix :) As do I.
