(1. shrink your MS Windows, if necessary)
2. start Live Knoppix
3. click on monitor icon in pannel
4. type su + Enter
5. type cfdisk
6. don't touch Windows partition
7. make new partition for Linux, minimum 3GB, press spase bar so this partition will be bootable
8. make new partition, 400MB, then go to Type and press Enter 2x, you will get swap partition (82, I think)
9. go to Write, type yes, wait until it finish
10. reboot.

Now repet steps 2, 3, 4. Type knx2hd + Enter. Now you are in installation menu. Choose start instalation. Install boot loader in MBR.

Which partitions are primary, and which are logical?

You must find exact explanation in documentation, but, practically, if you have 2 or 3 primary partition, rest of the hdd sudenly becom unusable. So, you make first partition primary, second logical and you can than have more partition, until the end of hdd. This way I installed 4 diferent Linux on one hdd.
