    Saving Configuration Settings to a CD

    Now that I've learned how to save my configurations to a floppy disc (see previous postings), I have another problem. I have another, newer computer that doesn't have a floppy drive. I'll have to burn the configuration files to a CD or DVD and then be able to read them back. How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions

    You likely don't. At a minimum it would require 2 CD/DVD drives, since one will be containing the Knoppix CD at the point the configuration files are needed. And you would have to reburn a disc whenever you changed the configuration (hope you use CR/RW). Far better would be to use a small inexpensive USB flash drive. Or, if you have an old IDE drive lying around (or want to buy a small cheap drive), add it to the computer as a second drive and put a FAT partition on it.

    CD Drives

    Harry,

    Thanks for your comments. In fact, I do have two drives. One is a CD/DVD-RW and the other is a CD-ROM drive (I hope I've used the correct terminology here.) Anyway, I can read a CD from both drives and burn to one.

    Nevertheless, I'll look into the USB flash drive.

    I save my configuration settings to my hard driver, hda2. It only involves a couple of files and it's very convenient. When I reboot I type:

    knoppix myconfig=scan

    When I want to preserve those settings to a cdrom I use k3b to do the job .

    Saving Configuration

    At Harry's suggestion I got a USB flash drive. Then I had problems getting KNOPPIX LINUX to recognize it and save my configurtion files to it. After much trial and error, I found a solution that works for me. First, I boot up using the KNOPPIX cheatcode:

    knoppix usb2

    Upon loading, Linux recognizes the flash drive and will store my configuration on it. On all subsequent boots, I use the cheatcode:

    knoppix usb2 config=scan

    This causes Linux to recognize the flash drive and use the configuration file stored on it.

    I appreciate the suggestions you've all made. Thanks
