    Knoppix Amnesia

    After several failed attempts at creating a dual boot system, I am in inch from throwing in the towel and going write to a Live CD situation on my XP machine.

    My question is simple. How do I save things like favorites for Mozill and programs etc. If I am booting from a Live CD everytime.

    It seems to me that I'll have to start from scratch everytime. I know I must be wrong. Please help me wrap my head around it...

    Here's the answer from the Knoppix FAQ:

    Go to the K-menu > KNOPPIX > Configuration and choose "save config", you can save to floppy or to an already existing partition on the harddrive. (on a windows partition is fine)

    To restore it, at the "boot:" prompt type in "knoppix myconfig=scan", and it should find and restore your saved settings at boot time.

    you can find this specific FAQ at:

    EDIT: I find a small USB key works very well, since you can carry it around and have the same settings on different machines

    Smile Knoppix?

    What's Knoppix? Can I use it in Red Hat Linux 9.0 Publisher Edition (GNOME), so I can run Fedora Core 4? I am desperate.

    Re: Knoppix

    Knoppix is an OS that will run from the cd.
    From the cd, you have access to tools like qtparted.

    Use CODE tags when posting output of commands. Thank you.

    You've been given the exact terminology by fogcat. Open a console window and type this:
    su <enter key>
    knoppix-installer <enter key>
    That should pop up a window for you.
