I see thats is necessary to explain another aspect, I use Knoppix 5.1 in CD and Knoppix 6.2 in CD, in an external hard disk I save some other programs and installers, like Skype, I wrote a script to help my automated installation of programs usefully for me, as flash, skype, planetary viewers, and other. I don't use a permanent image or copy of each Knoppix in hard disk or magnetic media. My issue is thats I need to save a package copy in my external hard disk, and when I need, install some of my programs for use him, I init my work with a command in boot place of Knoppix, thus, Knoppix toram, press Enter, take a time to view KDE or LXDE, when I use KDE (Knoppix 5.1) I don't have an application to automatically view my Huawei E160 mobile modem, but, if I use LXDE (Knoppix 6.2) in the task bar appear an icon with double PC monitors, and, if I click on this, voila, I have internet active trough Huawei E160 mobile modem. I need to know how much packages I need to save an use to make this possible in Knoppix 5.1.
And, in response of your idea of upgrade, the latest Knoppix release is 6.2 with LXDE, but I have some inabilities in KDE, managing commands and applications. On time to take time, I practice in LXDE, thank you for your response, but my question is: how I do a copy of libraries, packages and application to automation in use all option in any CD copy of Knoppix.
Thank to You, to take a time to response.

cp -a -p /source(your home directory)/* /destination(backup device)/*
cp -a -p /source(backup device)/* /destination(your new home directory)/*
cp -a -p copies all files in the directory & sub-directories and maintains permissions.
Hope this helps.
