    Knoppix 3.4 EXT3 / Reiserfs

    On the begining of the knoppix-installer, I didn`t understand those options:

    Beginner : Multi-user system with hardware-detection (preferred way)
    Knoppix: Knoppix system like from cd
    Debian: Debian system (old installer way)

    What is the difference in each one?

    3 options

    I have always used the DEBIAN way. The KNOPPIX way I just plain didnt like. And from what I read on the BEGINNER choice, there were problems with it. But what have you got to lose??? You can always do an install using one at a time till you settle on the one you like best....I suggest DEBIAN. The cool thing about the KNOPPIX choice is you get a cool startup and shutdown audio message!!! You lose it with the other 2 choices, which sux.

    This is the best discussion I've seen on the merits of each.

    Functionally, the biggest difference between Knoppix style & Debian styale is that Knoppix style runs through a complete new HW autodetection each time it starts up (just like on the CD). All other file systems & partitions are detected but not mounted, there are the mount icons on the desktop, etc. just like the CD. It also rewrites a new fstab but this can be stopped by using bootcode 'nofstab' if you have a custom fstab to automount drives. Unlike the CD, it does not resort to defualt settings for your /home but retains any changes you have made. (like the CD with a persistent home). On the plus side, you can use it as a base system for remastering a custom CD.
    Debian style loses much of the Knoppix specialties (like the startup/shutdown vocals) and attempts to mimic a basic Debian system but with all the apps found in Knoppix pre-installed.

    thanks for your answers..
    What the about the hw when I choose Debian style? because my internet didnt work automatically when I choosed the Debian way..differently of when I choosed the Begginer style, which automatically detected and configured my internet.
    thanks again,
    Thiago.

    PS. Sorry if I wrote anything wrong, Im at Brazil, so, its kind of hard to practice my english.

    Sorry about the stupid preview question... I hadnt noticed about the nofstab ....
    now, when we choose the Debian Style it uses the hw config that has been loaded by Knoppix boot right? Bacause I noticed that my internet didn't work on the Debian style, but it did work on the Beginner, is that normal?
    thanks a lot..
