Check out the book "Knoppix Hacks" from O'Reilly. It will tell you step by step how to do things with Knoppix and how to install it.[/i]

for that video you postedFirst, if every newbie creates a new post with the subject line"NEW TO KNOPPIX PLEASE HELP!!!" then we would have tons of useless non-descriptive subject lines. These useless subjects would not only foul up the search engine but ultimately make the forums less helpful for newbies. A better subject line would be "remove windows and install knoppix" or "install knoppix over windows". In the future please READ FIRST. Search second. Then if necessary post a detailed question so that we can help you.

The video is in flash format. You will have to view it in Windows or find a way to install the flash player in Knoppix (not an easy thing to do). If you have difficulties running windows then again note that at the top of the page:

If you can manage it, boot to windows & watch the video. If you can't, Is it possible to watch the video on someone else's PC? Then boot up knoppix on your pc and do:
sudo knoppix-installer

If you're browsing with firefox you should only need to click the video area and the flash player will install automagically. Ok, you need to press "Next" a couple of times.

I read all written upto here and didn't find answer. I have 250gb SATA disk. At the begin of the disk I have 125gb NTFS partition with XP. I want to make the rest 125gb on one ext3 partition. I have Konppix 3.9 on a cd. After it's load I pressed Ctrl - Alt - F2 and stated cfdisk. On the free space I created a new primary partition (I try with type 83 and with type 85). When I type "write", I receive error message "Illegal command" and "Toggle bootable flag of the current partition"! How can I solve this problem?

My next question is: If I desire to install knoppix on it (befor that i'll make swap partition) can I use both knoppix and windows? And is it a problem that the linux partition will not be first? (linux partitions will not be in first 8gb)
