    Hard disk installation of Knoppix is not recommended by Knoppix Dev Team. I would suggest you to install any Linux distro meant for Hard disk installation.
    You can install every single package, available in Knoppix, in any Linux distro.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I'm not sure why this thread went dead. You might want to check out Xubuntu for an older machine
    Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
    Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17
