is it possible to install knoppix on the hard drive?

it currently runs windows 95.. the bios is too old so it won't boot to a usb device.. it does contain a pcmcia 3com 3cxe589ec ethernet card, but i can't seem to get it to boot from the knoppix terminal server.. maybe i'm doing this incorrectly.

is there any other way? i thought about trying to install lilo and then copy the image of knoppix on the second partition somehow (ftp while in windows), but i couldn't find any docs on how to install lilo (or grub) from windows.

any help would be appreciated..
