HOW TO INSTALL RPM IN KNOPPIX
I'm running knoppix 3.8.2 and is using it now to connect to the internet.
I've downloaded an RPM but when I tried to install it, menu pops up saying I need to install using Alien.
Could you please help me in the right direction? Thanks

I don't mean to give you a RTFM, but if you try "man alien" that should give you some helpful information, such as syntax, and how alien converts rpm's to deb's.How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"

Knoppix is Debian-based, and Debian uses .deb-files instead of .rpm
