    I'm not one to do the assignment for you, but i have some ideas:

    knoppix is run from a cd, so no harddrive modifications/no hard drive nessicary

    knoppix is run from a cd, so if you screw it up, reboot and your back to working

    knoppix is on a cd, you can put it into a machine with a different OS and temporarily use it, then go back to the original OS with no problems

    knoppix is a full fledged OS, so you can be all nice and GUI and surf and chat and IRC and word process. just cuase its on a CD, its not limited

    knoppix can access fat16, fat32, ntfs drives, so you can access files already on your existing harddrive (movies, mp3s, documents, password files)

    knoppix is great for recovering a computer had that problems. although you can't modify a NTFS file, you can inspect it and better know what the problem is.

    knoppix is on a CD, therefore read-only, so stuff liek NTFS support, mp3 codec, divx, xvid, etc, etc, etc are already pre-configured. and unusual, but sometiems nessicary drivers like orinoco_cs are compiled in already, making this a distro that a default redhat can't compare to (no flame please, this is an opinion)

    PS please post back a copy of what you turn in, i would really like to know how it turns out and your take on the distro
