-=-New to Linux. Please Help!!!-=-


I recently started using Knoppix version 3.7, and i like it, a lot. the only thing i hate is having to boot it from a cd. do you guys know any way to put it on your hard drive, and also i am trying to get mandrakelinux, but it is taking forever. right now im only downloading them one disc at a time, and i have cable, and its been taking forever and it is no where near done. also, are there any free partitioning freewares online because i dont have the money and i want to partition my harddrive.so please help me guys.

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

in knoppix, open a terminal and type
Code:
sudo su -
knoppix-installer
That information, btw, is available in the FAQ that
Knoppix will open in a browser for your convenience
as it starts ... ;}



Cheers,
Tink

I have never tried to install Knoppix to my harddrive, but I know that there should be a command like Tinkster said....

As for partitioning tools, there is a very good one on your Knoppix CD. It is called QTParted. It looks and works similarly to PartitionMagic for Windows.

In a console type:
Code:
sudo knoppix-installer
and then follow the prompts.
