    What version of Knoppix are you running?

    You can run KDE on such a limited system if you have a sufficiently large swapfile. I'm not that familiar with WinME, but from what I've read WinME seems to use the FAT filesystem instead of NTFS. If that is the case, Knoppix will have no problem creating a swapfile of, say, 140 MB on a FAT-formatted drive. Simply boot Knoppix and after Knoppix tells you that you don't have sufficient memory, Knoppix will ask you where and how big of a swap file you would like.

    You also have a few other options:
    1) add more RAM
    2) use some other desktop, e.g. boot: knoppix desktop=xfce
    3) use only a command-line interface
