My first Linux was a live CD of Knoppix 3.x that I used to use on the
family computer sometime around 2003 when nobody else was using it.
After a few weeks, I decided to partition the Windows XP drive and
install Knoppix properly. I broke the MBR during the process, and didn't
know how to fix it.
Worried was an understatement. I thought I had broke the new family
computer with an Invalid / Non System Disk error. I hadn't any money at
the time to fix it either. I did my best to make Knoppix look like
Windows XP, and told the family I had renamed Internet Explorer to
Konqueror. They used it seamlessly for a couple of days until I
discovered Ultimate Boot CD, and figured out how to fix it.
That incident curtailed my Linux use for a while, but I went back to
Knoppix eventually before moving to Ubuntu, and now Debian.
