i was just wondering what you all thought of spliting Knoppix into a DVD with all the packages, and a slimmed down cd version for old comps? Read http://news.zdnet.co.uk/software/lin...9181773,00.htm dylunio...

Reminds me of the SimplyMepis/ProMepis split a few months back. Makes no difference to me; I don't use LiveCDs.

I only ever use live distro's like Knoppix when I have to use my mom's laptop, and my mom dosn't let me set up a nice SuSE/Win98SE dule boot on it
When using Knoppix 3.6 on it I had a heck of a lot of trouble setting it up, so maybe the slimmed down version will be better for me

I do occasionally use SimplyMepis as a quick and easy way to get a Debian base system installed, then apt-get from there. I haven't tried the Knoppix harddrive install since version 3.2, so I don't know how reliable it is (it was still unofficial in that version).

I like Simply MEPIS much better than knoppix, I have hard loaded two machines with it, and I use one of them every day. As of this day, I will say that MEPIS is the most easy Linux OS I have ever loaded. Two weeks ago I hard loaded Knoppix 3.6 on this very machine, ended up with the unstable SID version and I am still fussing with it (Still better than Winblows).Research, research, research before you walk the plank.
