    Let us write one Knoppix-HowTo together

    Salve,

    the wiki pages here under Docs/ are very usfull.
    By trying to discribe how to start Knoppix from hd, I wrote
    more a chapter for a HowTo then a FAQ. Why not start
    now to write together here one Knoppix-Howto?

    What do you think about this Contents:
    http://www.knoppix.net/docs/index.php/HowTo ?

    Greetings
    Rob

    Yes and No.

    I am working on my own knx-hdinstall guide. www.phpcad.com/knoppix-install.html

    It would be nice to have one, but there is always the problem of someone not thinking it is being done right so they start another.

    Do you think that someone can write everything?
    Multiple descriptions for the same problem is not so bad,
    but they must be linked together AND must be better then
    FAQs or short postings in this forum.

    If there realy were 2 or more people which don't like each other
    text, other people can write a fusion and the publicity can
    desside which text is better.

    Do you have linked your text to this wiki?

    For the beguinning it is important what we make with our resources.
    The wheel and tricks with Knoppix haven't to develop two times.
    What do you thing would happend, if Klaus would like to do everythink
    himself in hisway?

    I think it is big problem who write on the HowTo,
    it is more the question, for whom will it be written.

    If we have one big knowledge base HowTo for us, it is more easier
    to write a short HowTo for beginners.
    Isn't it good, that you care more about the first stepps of Newbes
    and I think about one compendium?

    One example, when we write about how to burn cds with GNU/Linux Knoppix "cdrecord dev=0,0,0" and the user has a scsi hd........

    Documentation and education is very important, that the users
    know what they are doing.
    I would like to see an animated tutor, too. You boot the Knoppix
    and on the start window you have an animation that speaks with you
    and show you interactivily how knoppix (and GNU/Linux) can be used.

    So I agree "Yes and No".
    Greetings

    and you have this subheader: "Hard drive? who needs a hard drive?"

    Salve god,
    I found a way to boot Knoppix form CD copy /cdrom to hd and install
    lilo with a running Knoppix. Isn't this what you are looking for?
    Testing a new remasterd Knoppix without burning CDs?
    See 1.2 of: http://www.knoppix.net/docs/index.php/HdBasedHowTo
    This night I tryd to find a way runing Knoppix and burning itself
    bootable on one cd - but I faild. OK, but this is OT.

    The more people write a bit, the more we share our knowledge
    wiki is
    rob

    PS: is the aberation HDD more correct for hard disk then hd?

    if you copy the files off os an iso to /KNOPPIX(on any partion) and use a boot floppy you can test without burning. Personally, I use a RW....


    I think HDD=Hard Disk Drive....
