Actually I'm writing this from Knoppix as installed on my New Laptop. Works great.

I did attempt an apt-update followed by an individual package update. The result was that dselect was going to uninstall over 1/3rd of the installation including the entire KDE environment without replacing it with updated packages. The package didn't even have anything to do with KDE.

Is the "apt-get dist-upgrade" thing a safer/reliable way of doing things with Knoppix? I'm afraid of breaking to much of the "harmony" that Klaus Knopper has produced.

After some years we have sidux, the easiest installer of Debian sid. It is a live cd!
