    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    What mfillpot is saying is true. Archlinux does not setup a user account by default. That is done by you. Read the man page about fstab or look online for documentation. Preferably, the archlinux documentation. Once you understand it, you will be able to fix most mount point issues. Try not to rely too much on YouTube videos as they are only demonstrations of other user's know-how, especially when new to Linux. Have a look at these sites. www.archlinux.com wiki.archlinux.com

    I also noticed you are using the root account. You did not create a user account. In the shell type: cd / This should to the beginning of the file system which is the root directory. Then use "ls" and tell me what is listed

    Interesting. Give me the YouTube link so I can have a look at. In the meantime, I am going to download that ISO file and examine the installation process. Try not to rely on YouTube videos. It is best to read the archlinux wiki. It gives better instructions on installation.

    Is it possible you can give us the version number of arch linux and the site you downloaded it from? I would like attempt an install of this system on my virtualbox. The idea is to see what you see and what errors could occur.

    If you get any error messages, write everything you see plus your previous steps and copy them here. With Linux, the choice is up to the user. You pick whatever you feel comfortable with. From there you can begin your journey into the GNU/Linux realm.

    RE: Live CD Knoppix
    The reason you see multiple files is because there have been multiple iso images made spanning from 2001 to 2013. Whenever a new iso spin is made it is posted on the main download site with the version and date. the file that you downloaded should work fine. The other files like the .MD5 and .Sha1 are used to confirm the iso is the authentic. This assures that you did not download a fake copy. You need to download these files, but is recommended that you check to make sure you have the right one. What version of linux do you have; ubuntu, fedora, mint, debian..etc? Ubuntu has a native program that will allow you to burn iso files. Xubuntu have xfburn, Ubuntu has bresaro or usb-startup. You can download both from the repositories. If you are using windows you can download, inetbootin: [url=http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/]inetbootin[/url] You do not have to extract anything. Just download and burn.
