Question Knoppix S-T-D Tutorials Wanted

Okay... Having some background use with UNIX at the office, I've been playing with all kinds of Live-CDs, trying to get a feel for what will suit my personal taste and needs. It's been great fun, and I've enjoyed Debian based Kanotix the most so far. Which incidentally, I have not seen much discussion in this forum on this distro.
Then my teenager decided to start experimenting with hashing, cracking, and hacking. I don't want to discourage him, unless it includes illegal activity. Being the case, I felt a need to accelerate my knowledge on the subjects and was directed to Knoppix S-T-D. This distro is not as user friendly as others, but does come with a host of interesting tools. I've visited and checked out their forum. I'm sure these guys know their stuff, but are a little arrogant and not eager to help-out a newbie with some basic questions.
The Knoppix STD Live-CD boots-up great, but doesn't recognize any of my hardware: wireless card, Ethernet, thumb drive, hard drive, etc. I've figured out that I need to load some drivers, but not sure how to get started. Any suggestions how to self educate with this distro and the included tools?

Lightbulb Sorry

Sorry about the double posting, it was not intentional. After I posted the original thread, the system prompted me for TAGS. I entered some TAGS and submitted, not knowing that it would post again.
Once I realized what happened, I searched for a way to delete the thread, but could not find a way to delete. This feature would be useful, so that those that create a thread can delete it. It would save this forum storage space, and solve the problem I had.
