a) change BIOS setup to boot from CD, insert Knoppix CD, start PC
b) (if you want to use often) install knoppix on a partition and start from harddisk

You probably need to tap the DEL key as the machine is booting up to enter the BIOS.

when booting up a message "press XXX to enter BIOS setup" should appear
press this key (usually DEL, F2 or F12) to enter BIOS setup screen.
