    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:
    http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Using_FAQ

    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.
    How to know if you are a geek.

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