    Boot Knoppix 3.3 from HDD using Grub for NTFS

    Hi
    I have GIS Knoppix (http://www.sourcepole.com/sources/so...ppix/index.xml) which is based on Knoppix 3.3. I have as OS Windows XP with NTFS partition. I want to boot from HDD using GRUB for NTFS (http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Win_Partition)
    I want to know if is possible to use Grub for NTFS to boot Knoppix 3.3 from HDD with the NTFS partition, or I need al least Knoppix 3.6 to do so

    Well as far as I know, the fist version of the initrd_ntfs ramdisk file required to boot knoppix from the iso file being in a ntfs partition has been made by the japanese Knoppix team and was for Knoppix 3.4. Then I updated the initrd_ntfs files for the following Knoppix releases up to the current Knoppix 4.0 DVD:

    I suppose that I could make a Knoppix 3.3 initrd_ntfs version, but does it really make sense since there are so many new nice features in the latest Knoppix releases ? Is there any update planned for gis-knoppix ? All this is just matter of finding the time to do it... and btw I don't think that I still have the Knoppix 3.3 iso. Let me know how desperate you are...
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Hi and Thank you
    It is a new released of GIS Knoppix based on Knoppix 3.4, but so far you have to pay...so I don't inted to pay
    I am not so desperate, but I was really wanted to use knoppix from HDD because is cumbersome to boot all the time from CD
    I will waite for the free release of GIS Knoppix based on Knoppix 3.4
