    Pete,

    Sounds good to me, only you might need a swap partition...

    From what I know of Knoppix, your swap should be in the following calculation:

    1 GB - total memory = SWAP partition

    or

    500 MB

    ( which ever is greater )

    If, on the other hand, you had 1 GB of RAM, then you would not need a swap at all.

    You might check the DOCS link at the top of the page, and find the "minimum requirements" FAQ ( frequently asked questions ) and see how you compare, but, I think you are ok on them, not sure on your processor though, you didn't provide that in your initial post...

    Hope this helps,
    Ms. Cuddles
