STOP. Either go to Fred Meyer (whoever they are) or follow RootK's instructions. The ISO is a Linux Distribution. It is its own operating system. It is exactly the same thing as Windows and the Mac OS. It can run a computer on its own. It needs nothing else. As for the purchased disc, what is it?
The ISO that you downloaded is the proper one, that is why I gave you the link instead of the download page. Try sticking the CD in a computer with no problems and see if it will boot. If it does, just remove the CD and turn the computer off. If it does not, remove the CD and turn the computer off. Restart the computer into windows. Tell RootK exactly what happened when you booted to the CD on the good computer.

In the future please just follow RootK's instructions and don't troubleshoot the computer thru someone else. When there is more than one person trying to fix the system, they can work at cross purposes. The tools and procedures we use here are not known or used by the average user or computer shop. Especially with a system like this one. One that a computer shop says needs to be replaced. We are trying to help you without costing you money. But in the end the choice is up to you.

You don't need to burn another CD. The only thing you need to do now is to check if the CD is correctly burned and if you can boot from it. To do so, follow these steps:

Start the computer from the CD again, when the black screen with the KNOPPIX logo appears, press F2, then type knoppix vga=normal and hit enter.

If you get the same gray screen or another problem, then restart the computer and repeat the process, but this time type the following: knoppix vga=normal screen=800x600

If that doesn't work, try with this code: fb800x600

Let me know how that goes.

Hi     Hoov    or rookt.................Danielle's mom here   it is now 4 AM here pacific time  and we started the last boot with the CD at 11 PM     it showed everything with those last numbers you gave her...............................then I told her that where she is plugging  it in is not a good plug in site for some reason,   it just doesn't hold plugs well..................I think that after the screen turned blue after it read every thing then it got lighter,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,we thought great,    I think if she does it in the morning about 9 AM puts it in a good plug in site as I told her,   to unplug phone and use that plug,   because we saw a little flicker now and again.................that must of been the cord not connecting well to the plug in.....................I bet it would of worked   so she is going to use that last code again when she awakes and the right plug in  is that ok?   I bet it would of been all done and windows would have shown............but she said she didn't hear me................so let us know if we can just redo what we did with that last code?     thanks guys  mixedup58 MOM
