Windows7 or Ubuntu (my examples) will not be damaged by this "Poor man's install" and when your are booting this install for the first time, you'll be asked to create persistent memory (overlay file - not overlay partition).
    Greetings, Werner and thank you for your response.

    I've received two big surprises with this response:

    1. I was unaware that your were the author of my first reference to the Knoppix Wiki's "Poor-Man's Install to HD"; and

    2. I was unaware of the fact that the Wiki information had been significantly reworked sometime before January 2013.
    and now contains the inclusion of an additional section I'm not familiar with:
    http://knoppix.net/wiki/Completely_n...sed_HowTo_page

    Are you the author of this section as well?
    If so, how does a reader of this section interact with the Wiki to clarify some sections that are unclear?
    Is this done via the Forum or via webmaster@(this domain)?

    Thanks again for your Wiki authorship in addition to your moderator duties.

    Since 2011 I've reworked over many of the Wiki articles and deleted more or less the half of them, because they had been outdated.
    If I look in the history of "Completely new HD based HowTo page" it seems, "Capricorny" is the author of it. I didn't want to change the title of this Wiki page, but I think, it is time to insert links to the paragraphs of "Category:Hard drive Installation".

    .
    I really appreciate both your efforts, Werner, and Capricorny's
    that are to be found in the Knoppix Wiki.

    I was unaware of the fact this material had been upgraded.
    I had been aware of its former obsolescence but had not recently ever
    checked to observe that it might have been recently improved.

    That said, I have three observations about its present much-improved state.

    1. The hard drive material in the Knoppix Wiki does need some better
    coordination of comparable material from two or more authors, just as you suggest.

    2. A Wiki, in my understanding, connotes a means whereby reference
    material may be submitted, be considered and judged, and then if
    appropriate used to advance the depth or quality of the reference
    material. The Wiki category is a misnomer under which all Knoppix
    reference material appears. I don't view any Wiki to be advisable
    for our forum because there are so few active members and so terribly
    few really competent active members. I suggest we change the Wiki
    category to Reference, but add some means of accessing authors of
    this material for clarification, where warranted.

    3. There needs to be some more obvious means whereby the category of
    Poor-Man HDD Installs reference material itself now found under a 'Wiki' heading
    might be questioned and discussed. I suggest that Poor-Man HDD Installs is
    by itself such a diverse topic that it merits its own unique forum category.
    If Ideas, Tips & Tricks, Other LiveCDs and the Lounge deserve categories,
    then Poor-Man HDD Installs certainly does.

    I just did a re-install because I didn't pay attention; I have used Knoppix for many years, just have never installed it.When I tried to use synaptic to update, it broke most things.So if I were to attempt to update Chromium, say, where would the relevant files be?If I were to install new programs, what kind of exciting things could I expect?QGIS is a program that is Debian compatible; which version, testing or stable, would be recommended?Thanks for your answer and your patience.Hobocaver
