is it legal to distribute this distro
It is legal to distribute a distro if and only if it is legal to distribute all its components. It probably will be, but you should check. The most likely source of restrictions tends to be trademark law - you may have to change branding of certain components. Read the Fedora Trademark Guidelines
. I have not been able to find any for Knoppix.
and what about torrents, is it legal to distribute torrents of such free software.
i am from india so any one from india, please make me aware of laws that are pertaining here..
In most countries that have freedom on the internet, this should be legal. To my knowledge, no country has outlawed the use of Bittorrent for legitimate purposes, let alone the distribution of .torrent files for such distribution.
