    Put disc in cd rom tray/slot, and hold down the "C" key while booting up.
    I didn't realize there was a version of knoppix, for the mac. I have it for my pc, and it runs from the disc..................
    Good luck! :)

    Oh gees that's right, it probably wont work because it is a windows disk. :( What's a good version of linux for a mac? Well, at least I know how to boot from a cd now. Thanks for your help.

    Good luck!
