knoppix saves the day

Knoppix has saved my machine again. I have suffered a minor hard drive failure, which left windows unable to boot. Given that I am unwilling to reformat my C: drive given that knoppix can read it, I have had a very slow windows 2000 reinstall – it insists on checking bad drives at reboot. Windows 2000 does so love it’s reboots. Knoppix on the other hand reboots in a min or less and can read all of the data drives. I was impressed that it had sound support from startup and was quite haapy about me plugging in USB devices. I am just finishing the restore of my emails from a drive windows describes as corrupt.
