This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correctthe problem by adding
Box to the file /etc/hosts" .
Log in Anyway - Try Again
that was after running DSL, after Beatrix, just replace the word "box" with "Beatrix"
I have to click "Log in Anyway" to get in.
When I open a terminal it says
When it used to say (before these live cd's)
I have run "Puppy Linux" without this problem. Both of the other cd's (DSL and Beatrix) seem to be based on the Knoppix kernel and they are the ones that have caused me this problem.
Can anyone offer a suggestion on how to correct this problem, short of reinstalling FC4.

Try using your old name of bill@localhost68 as noted in the example.
Make sure you backup your hosts file first, as the example suggests.
