Does Not Save Settings
When I boot Knoppix (7.6.0) I have to reset my time zone and wallpaper each time. Is there a remedy for this minor annoyance?
What configuration of 7.6 are you using?
If it's a LiveDVD or a poor-man's install, you need persistence to keep your changes.
If you did an install to flash disk, that should be working.
I made a HD install from the live DVD. It's a reiser partition, 19G, of which I seem to be using 13G at the moment. I tried unsuccessfully to install to a flash disk, maybe unsuccessful because the disk was a cheap generic kind and somehow didn't boot.

how to do a Flash install without burning the DVD. But first of all check your download

Thanks again. I see what my problem was with the flash (I had a fat32 format on the drive). I still don't understand why the boot is incomplete, however. I'll check the iso for accuracy.
Hello again, Dave.

The iso itself must be saved on a filesystem like ntfs or linux to begin with, not fat32.
The LiveUSB itself should be fat32 formatted initially.
A safe way to proceed is to actually to make a LiveDVD and then 'install to flash disk'
from the LiveDVD to make a LiveUSB with persistence.
