I am pretty new to knoppix. But installation on disk was without problems. The only problem is, that on disk there is no KNOPPIX MENU for system changes and configuration-network cards...When you boot from cd, the menu is there.

Did you log in as Knoppix or Root?

I have already done some knx-hdinstalls and also missed the KNOPPIX menu on versions later than 2002-11-12.
Here's a small HOWTO to keep it:
In konsole

$ sudo su
# cp /usr/local/bin/knx-hdinstall /ramdisk
# cd ramdisk
# vi knx-hdinstall
search the line:
chroot "$TR" rm -rf /usr/share/applnk/Knoppix /usr/share/gnome/apps/Knoppix
and comment it (put a # before it) =>
#chroot "$TR" rm -rf /usr/share/applnk/Knoppix /usr/share/gnome/apps/Knoppix
save & leave vi

run the script
# ./knx-hdinstall (from the /ramdisk dir)

Most progs in the KNOPPIX menu need root permissions to execute.
To change this goto (on kde desktop of your new debian system):
Menu K - system - menu-editor
Edit the menus in dialog box:
Check Run as different user (or similar - I use a german version)
Run as : root

Now it will work - you'll be asked the root password before the prog starts.
