Hello,

I found this artikel on this site:


1.4. Run Microsoft Windows, copy Knoppix to HD & make it bootable with bootmedia

Also called "poormans install" ;-)

NOTE: The partition (i.e. drive) that you are copying to (the D partition in the example below) must be a fat32 partition. If it is NTFS, the install will not boot.

* Copy the CD:\KNOPPIX\KNOPPIX file to HD:\KNOPPIX\
o E:\KNOPPIX\>mkdir D:\KNOPPIX
* E:\KNOPPIX\>copy KNOPPIX D:\KNOPPIX\

1 files(s) copied

* Make the bootfloppy. Start "mkfloppy.bat" on the CD in the KNOPPIX folder.
o E:\KNOPPIX\>mkfloppy
* Boot from the floppy or the USB keydrive (http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/keydrive) You need a BIOS (http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS) that can boot from Floppy (all) or from keydrive (USB-ZIP option). It should scan for the KNOPPIX file and find it on the harddisk.
* Enjoy


But I can't find a mkfloppy.bat on F:\KNOPPIX
and yes, F is my cdrom drive :D

Go to Google, find Smart Boot Manager and downlooad the DOS based installer to let you make one floppy that will let you boot any biootable cd.
