"BusyBox 1.0.0-rc1 released" ?!?!?! LMFAO! version 1, release candidate 1!!!!!! no offense but are you insane? (in the freindliest sense of the word ofcourse ) Man you've got guts to touch your windows install with this thing On the other note, seems like dpkg is trying to install the package to the actual CD. if your root dir is on the cd itself as I beleive is normal for knoppix linux (being mainly intended to run off CD) You might need to chroot to the HD. Since I have not used knoppix other than to install gentoo, I don't know the proccess to install external programs. That might have to be done befoe the CD is burned. Unfortunately, I don't have time to research this. Please let me know what you find out. PS alien is a must have in the linux world.
