I'm a total NOOB at linux so bear with me....I'm trying to install on a hp4150 laptop w/192mb, 6G HD. I've set up a swap and root partition but at between 10%-19% of installation it stops. Should I reburn an ISO from a different site? Any ideas would help. The MD5 checked out.....

welcome! since the md5 is ok, the first thing you should try is to burn another CD at around 8x or as slowly as you can. most problems with installation are caused by burn errors, and burning at lower speeds helps prevent that.

Welcome tdamocles ! Smilie

The most important part is to burn using DAO (Disc At Once). Kanotix uses high compression technology, special care is needed when burning the CD, use high quality CD-media [or DVD+RW] and not faster than 8x, if using Nero in windows use SAO

Well you can do (assuming this is HD (harddrive) install)


Ctrl+Alt+F1

Log in as root ( type root, it will ask for password )

then type

passwd username that will change your user password to what you want

If "root" is the problem just login as root and type

passwd which changes the password for root to what you want

If still problems you can try adding another user

adduser

Login name for new user [] "whatevernameyouchoose"

Add your name to audio group in the step Additional groups for the rest just use default by pressing enter

Are you trying to log in as user or root? AFAIK root login to KDE is disabled by default. (You should consult a KDE user to confirm that however). If your user cannot log in try logging in to a VT (Virtual Terminal)
CTRL+ALT+F1
Enter your user name, it will prompt you for a password. Failing that try to log in to the VT as root. If you can log in as root then you can change the user password. This should not be an issue however.

It's default that you can't login to KDE as root (atleast not from the login manager) but this can be changed in /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc. But on the other hand there shouldn't be any reason to do this since there is the option to start an application as root when needed.

tdamocles:
Also don't fortget that the password is case sensitive so type it exactly like you have done during the installation setup. If you can login on a terminal then the problem is within KDE.
BTW: You haven't said yet which version of Kanotix you have installed, that's also important for the next steps.

You should NEVER need to login to KDE as root. Always login as a regular user then use sudo/sux/su to perform an operation as root.
