    Hi smizzio,

    Well, the Ubuntu LiveCD is just like the Ubuntu install CD except that it runs off the CD. Knoppix on the other hand is a more complete LiveCD with 2GB of files crammed onto a CD. Ubuntu and Knoppix will perform much better when they are installed onto the hard drive. If you just want a LiveCD, go with Knoppix because it is more complete. If you want to eventually go with a hard drive install, you can choose either. I believe you can install Knoppix to the disk using the LiveCD but Ubuntu requires the install CD (as far as I know).

    Hope that helps,
    Bryan

    Also, Ubuntu is Gnome and Knoppix is KDE. The is a KDE version of Ubuntu called Kubuntu (which I use) and a Gnome version of Knoppix called Gnoppix.

    Google them for more info.
