Knoppix is designed to run from a Live CD/DVD and if you are not an experienced Linux user, you will likely have problems as explained in the knoppix site below:

It is possible to install to a hard drive and there are hundreds of sites explaining how to if you google it. The big problem you will have will be keeping it updated as explained in the page above.

I think the last two versions of Knoppix include an installer despite the creator's intentions originally. He did mean that knoppix was intended for live booting.

If you have an older version it gets a bit tricky. A lot of file copying and chmod and chroot. As above there are many older web pages on how to do it.
