Looking for discount O'Reilly books-Knoppix Hacks


Found a site/store not to long ago that had discount O'Reilly/computer books, including Knoppix Hacks, for about half price. I forgot to bookmark it. Anyone know the site I'm thinking of?

Thanks.

just wanted to state that my copy came in this afternoon. would of been here yesterday, but we have a new mailman and he missed me at the office.

anyways, its a great book. there is so much more to knoppix then i ever suspected. even the vs of knoppix that comes with the book has experimental read/write access to NTFS partitions to deal with fixing windows systems. knoppix uses f-prot for its anti-virus unlike INSERT that uses ClamAV. both are great. this was my first time using f-prot in many years and i have to say it is as fast as ever. just scanned roughly 17G of data in about 15-20min on a semi slow system running

Code:
knoppix26 toram
this loads up knoppix with the 2.6.x kernel and puts it to a ramdisk so i can have access to my CDRW and the system wll run faster. DO NOT try that unless you have at least 1G of ram. the ramdisk img is roughly 800M.

the book has a lot of drivle in it that i could do without as it deals a lot with making the desktop look all fancy. oh well i know a lot of people are really into that. for me the default GUI is nice enough. you also have access to flux and a few other GUI desktops if you do not want to use KDE.

the windows p/w recovery tool is not built into the distro, but is easy enough to access, but i was unable to locate the SAM on my windows system to test it out. i was a bit taken back when i noticed my winXP Pro box has a c:/WINDOWS folder instead of the standard c:/WINNT for most XP systems. i wounder if that is something i did when i put this box together. its been a while since i formatted this workstation.

could somone give me the command to do a search via CLI on an entire mount? thanks.
