    As this hasn't been answered, it's probably too late for the asker, but just for the record:
    Download and burn latest downloadable (currently 6.4.4), DVD version may be the safest. Install it to a pendrive, setup a persistent store, use synaptic or apt-get to install whatever programs you still are missing. Do NOT attempt at a full system upgrade unless it is absolutely necessary. When you boot from the USB, enter the options you need (always knoppix or knoppix64 for using the 64-bits kernel, adriane will give you the other, "talking" interface). Get used to working in a terminal window, if you aren't already.

    I have a similar question, I have the 6.7 CD and somehow I thought there was a menu choice to burn a USB drive, but maybe I was mistaken. I'll boot up Knoppix and look again. What are we missing?

    Thanks.

    Greetings, Dave
    Look at Main Menu>Preferences>Install Knoppix to Flash Disk.

    Installing additional software

    Hello
    I'd like to ask you for a little help. I've installed Knopix 7.0. When running 32bit version I can run some installation program but I need 64bit (it doesn't work under 32bit), when I've boot system in 64bit version the same program doesn't work; simply I got this message:

    root@Microknoppix:/mnt/disk# ./INSTALL
    copying necessary files to /tmp/***_install_tmp4503/
    Executing /tmp/***_install_tmp4503/instcore
    /tmp/***_install_tmp4503/INSTALL: line 95: /tmp/***_install_tmp4503/instcore: No such file or directory

    Can somebody help me with my problem? I'm just a beginner.

    Thank you in advance for any help.
