I use to have a Knoppix CD that was given to me by a college professor but it is stuck in a CD drive that can't be opened.  Does anyone know of a site with a download that will make a bootable CD of Knoppix so that I can run that on a computer who's OS crashed to back up data.

Thanks,
Alan

Most cd drives have a small hole in front. Insert a straightened paperclip into that hole and push the tray open with it, then you should be able to remove the CD.

Often if you switch a PC on, and press the eject button during the POST / boot process you can extract the CD concerned.
