On my laptop I cannot boot into graphical mode nor text mode. I'm
using a Knoppix 6.5 I got in a Linux Magazine. I thought there might
be a tool I could use from the Knoppix live DVD to test the internal
drive on my laptop. I currently have Fedora 13 installed on my laptop.
I don't know how to check/test the internal drive on my laptop using
the Knoppix 6.5 live DVD. If someone can give me some advice, I would
greatly appreciate it.

Thank you
