I just download Knoppix 3.6 CD 700MB, when I boot up and say I want to type something in OpenOffice, where would it get saved to? Can I save it to my HD? I have 2 partitions, one with windows ntfs and one fat32 with no OS, just backup files. Thanks.

you can save to the fat32 partition which knoppix will probably call hda5. Do not attempt to write to the ntfs partition unless you use captive ntfs.
You will first have to mount hda5 (use the desktop icon) then change it to read/write Right click on the desktop icon). Or type 'sudo mount -rw /dev/hda5' in a terminal.

Ok thanks, I saved my configuration on it, but when I booted i put in
knoppix hda5conf and it didn't work. I also tried knoppix myconfig=scan and it didn't work either.
