    Poor man's install???

    Hi all

    I am looking at doing a HD install of Knoppix, and I have heard about the poor mans install. My question is how do you do it in the first place.

    IE, how do I get started, I thought I found a page that had the info, but I cannot find it any more.

    Help Please

    T

    1.4. Run Microsoft Windows, copy Knoppix to HD & make it bootable with bootfloppy

    Also called "poormans install"

    NOTE: The partition (i.e. drive) that you are copying to (the D partition in the example below) must be a fat32 partition. If it is NTFS, the install will not boot.
    Copy the CD:\KNOPPIX\KNOPPIX file to HD:\KNOPPIX\

    E:\KNOPPIX\>mkdir D:\KNOPPIX
    E:\KNOPPIX\>copy KNOPPIX D:\KNOPPIX\
    1 files(s) copied
    Make the bootfloppy. Start "mkfloppy.bat" on the CD in the KNOPPIX folder.

    E:\KNOPPIX\>mkfloppy
    Boot from the floppy. It should scan for the KNOPPIX file and find it on the harddisk.
    Enjoy
