A few queries about using Knoppix 3.3
I've just installed Knoppix 3.3 on my harddrive and I have some q's about using it:
1: Can I create shortcuts on the desktop so I dont have to use the command line to start an app.? for instance if I want to use amsn I have to open bash and go "cd /Desktop/amsn-0_93"
then "./amsn". I there a way I make a shortcut to do this for me?
2: Volume control?! I have no sound the speakers and soundcard are good...i've tested them under Windows (shudder). I have a feeling the volume might be set to mute somewhere...
Thanks in Advance,

You should be able to place links on the desktop with KDE. Configure them using the path to the executable, and pick the related icon.
Volume control: open up bash, and type 'alsamixer' that will bring up the sound card configuration. Use the arrow & the M button to (un)mute the channels and raise the sound level. ESC for exiting alsamixer, # 'alsactl store' for saving your settings so they will be used everytime you boot.
