3. If not, could a data CD be made such that a very basic FC 4 system is
created on the CD, then later additional services could be added to the
such as KDE and its additional requirements ?
This seems like an excellent way to learn the basics of an OS.
Incidentally, I tried a Knoppix 3.2 CD and it failed on the HP!

Hi Bob:

This is slightly off-topic but it may be helpful. I have an HP Pavilion similar to (but not the same as) yours. I can boot from the Knoppix CD by using the "acpi=off" cheatcode.

At the boot prompt type:

knoppix acpi=off

...and then press Enter

Good luck and feel free to contact me off-list if you have a question;

I was going to suggest using acpi=on

My HP Pavilion will not work without acpi enabled. :-)
