I saw someone else mention about changing something in the httpd.conf file to Group #-1 and apache still won't start.

I am using the Knoppix Harddrive install.

Hi Xylene!

Please start XAMPP as user root. For example use the su command to switch to the root user.

and I know it's a HD installation, but for Users that may follow,
if you only have the CD Version running, the command would be:
sudo su

Thanks, works great. I actually asked for help in the IRC channel after posting here, and they told me right away.
