Install GRUB through Knoppix?
I'm trying to re-do GRUB because it only recognizes suse 10 and windows, not my pclinuxos. How do I do this in knoppix, or is there a different easy way to do it? Thanks.

Re-doing grub can mean to reconfigure or install again. I gather you mean to reinstall. In that case do the following:
Mount the partition (provide the correct HD notation for hdax):
# mount -o dev,rw /mnt/hdax
If it's already mounted, remount it like this:
# mount -o remount,dev,rw /mnt/hdax
Now, restore grub like this:
# chroot /mnt/hda1 grub-install /dev/hda
If the chroot method doesn't work, try remounting as outlined above and do:
# grub-install -root-directory=/mnt/hda1 /dev/hdaIt may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question, but it sounds like you are wanting to add PCLinuxOS to your grub menu. Is that correct?
If so, just edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to include your pclinuxos distribution. You can use your Suse entry as a working example of how the entry should look, but you have to modify that to fit the partitions/kernel used by pclinuxos.
Hope that made sense.
