Hi together,
i have tried knoppix 4 and was happy that my wlan on my IBM T43 worked properly. BUT after the harddisk installation the network will no longer work. the wlan is no longer listed as device and i can't configure it.
can anyone help me? I'm not very used to linux but will give it a try.

I have had such a problem, too.
After installing Knoppix in debian-style the system started with gnome. The network-admin found here did not function, it hangs.
Try to change to KDE and use the knoppix-networkcard-setup.
Or do the configuring by hand in /etc/network/interfaces.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Or perhaps

auto eth0 eth1
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet dhcp

into this file.

This does only function if you have a dhcp-server. In other cases you need to specify the ip-adress, and gateway-adress.
