    I would suggest you try any other Linux Distro. Its not recommended to install Knoppix. Use it as LiveCD only.
    Check distrowatch.com and pick any Linux distro from Top 10 list. Check the link in my signature too. It will get you going.

    I prefer ext3 filesytem and would suggest you to format partition in that only.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If you meant that you want to install Knoppix to hard drive and you need to know which filesystem to use, then reiserfs or ext3 should do. The Knoppix website suggests that installing Knoppix to hd is not recommended for new users because of potential problems with the hd install. They encourage new users to look at Debian instead if they want to do an hd install.

    Unless you are saving your data or settings to a usb stick/drive, all changes you make will be lost because most live discs store data in memory which is lost once you reboot or shutdown.

    That's what I thought you wanted to know, in addition to what daark.child explained to you, you could also save them to your hard drive, if you know how to mount it from within Knoppix.
    Most files that you download from the net, have their own extension, so just save the files as whatever they are named.
