    Experiments with an overlay file system to allow easier on-the-fly
    installations of new software and possibly eliminating the need of a
    separate /ramdisk virtual partition.
    I wanted !!!

    Also, what about enabling the Arabic language in OpenOffice ??
    It won't cost space, and will help Arabic users greatly.

    I second to this recommendation.

    It seems that Open Office for Windows already have this support for right to left written languages.

    I have also written to Mr. Knopper to add Urdu Keyboard (i.e. Pakistani Language), as it is spoken by 295 million people (of Pakisatan and India).

    Nevertheless, I don't know any font which support Urdu completely for Linux. (Urdu has 6 more alphabets than Arabic).

    At moment, only Helvitica and ClearlyU font seems to give partial support to Arabic/Persian/Urdu language.

    Regards.

    I would like to see the inclusion of the forcedeth patch for those brave souls who use an NForce chipset motherboard and would like to use it's onboard NIC without having to compile NVIDIA's drivers or keep a module file on floppy. I use it personally myself and it seems to be stable.

    Build RAID into the kernel

    How about including RAID into the kernel instead of module?

    I guess KDE 3.2 will be in testing very soon after it was released (will be on 2nd februari), so it will appear on knoppix not long after that...

    hmmmmmm 3.2
    running beta2 now, very nice & quite stable already.
    damn lot improved
    beats 3.1.4 on every point...

    Give Arabix a try. You'll like it.
    I found it at Distrowatch.com

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Man oh man, I have this (captive ntfs) on my dual boot laptop and have to say it works like a charm. I held my D: partition as FAT32 to enable file sharing between XP and Linux, but I hate the 2 gig file limit. With this I can convert it to ntfs and won't have to put up with it anymore.

    Just have to remember how to load XP with LILO. I'm using XOSL now so when XP blows the MBR I can restore it super fast.

    I really would like arabic suport as well, but the question is if this should be included on a international Knoppix, isn't it better to do a national version? Well there really should be more collaboration between local versions and Knoppix MAIN... ;-/
