    This is how I run Knoppix v3.1 from my hard disk

    This is how I run Knoppix v3.1 from my hard disk (under Windows XP SP1 FAT32)

    Run Knoppix from the CD Rom
    Setup and save configurations to a blank and formatted diskette
    (K->KNOPPIX->Configure->Save KNOPPIX Configurations)
    Copy the contents of the CD to a partition
    Edit X:\KNOPPIX\mkfloppy.bat to rawrite2 -f boot-en.img -d A (for English)
    Where X is the location of the contents of the Knoppix CD
    Insert a blank and formatted diskette
    Run mkfloppy.bat to create a bootable floppy
    Copy your configurations to the Knoppix directory on your hard disk
    Change your BIOS to boot from floppy
    Insert the bootup floppy
    At the Boot prompt, type knoppix floppyconfig
    (If you don't type anything at the Boot prompt, Knoppix will run and detect your configurations)

    If you want to add anything, please edit the whole message and post the instructions in full for the benefit of newbies like meself

    One bug that I discovered is that after rebooting to WinXP, I have to query the external modem before I could use it

    Copy your configurations to the Knoppix directory on your hard disk
    How do you copy the Knoppix configurations? I thought that they were a .tbz file

    when saving your configurations to the diskette,
    I think you will have 2 files
    knoppix.sh and configs.tbz
    copy them to X: Knoppix/Knoppix
