    installing knoppix on hard drive

    Hello

    First off all , is this possible? I do not just want to have it nested but i want to completely install it on 1 partition so i can choose what operating system to boot . Can i do that and how?

    If not, is there any other distro similar to knoppix that can be installed on a drive?

    thanks

    1) Use knoppix-installer
    2) Configure an installation then Quit.
    3) Say 'yes' to save your configuration.
    4) Edit the file .knofig
    5) Look for this line:
    # Default value is: yes
    BOOT_DISK="yes"

    6) Change 'yes' to 'no'
    7) Save the file
    knoppix-installer
    9) DO NOT load a previously saved config as it will find .knofig automatically.

    CTRL+ALT+F5 (could be F2-9, but F5 is 99%certain in knoppix)
