Knoppix V6 startup and shutdown sounds “Initiating startup sequence” and “Initiating shutdown sequence”

Knoppix startup and shutdown sounds

I have always really enjoyed the startup and shutdown sounds that are in the knoppix linux live boot cd. I did a little bit of research, and with the help of my friend Google, I was able to track down the exact location of the files (/usr/share/sounds/). I have provided links to download the sound clips in the following formats: mp3, wav and ogg (ogg being the original format). The woman says "Initiating startup sequence" in the startup sound clip and "Initiating shutdown sequence" in the shutdown sound clip.

Go there and download the sounds...

Thanks so much! These are great!:) I looked in the Knoppix directory's and couldn't find them. I searched Google for "knoppix startup sound download" and found your site. The /usr/share/sounds/ folders don't show up in a Virtual Machine in Virtual Box. So, I was really glad to find them available to download. I also read that the reason they don't show up is because of the way that Knoppix compresses the Data in the ISO file. The first thing I did was open up my KNOPPIX_V6.2CD-2009-11-18-EN.iso with ISO Master. But they don't show up there either.
