I was wondering is there any way i can install the knoppix 4.0 to hard disk and use dual boot? Also i want to remove aLinux which is installed on of the hard drives beacuse its so not user freindly at all. can anyone tell me first how to remove the aLinux and then how to install knoppix 4.0?
Edit if its not possible to install the knoppix 4.0 to hard disk then can anyone also tell me how to remove Linux boot program called LILO or something.

I would like to point out the second sentance in the instructions however: Knoppix is designed & intended to be used as a GNU/Linux (http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html) LiveCD and not a HD installed Linux distro.
I hate 2 say this but windows is the best way to format your hard drive. Use the install cd of windows to format it. than take it out on reboot and not install and you'll have a great format. Sad that my best use for windows is using the cd to format my hd.
Hello all, I'm a fellow noob who successfully installed Knoppix 4.0.2 on a computer that I keep at work. The HD install was a little tricky, but worked.
On the Knoppix site when it says that the livecd wasn't intended for HD install, that doesn't mean it won't run or they don't think you should ever do it. It only means that their core reason for making Knoppix available is the live version.
Once Knoppix is installed to HD it works great and you can save all your created files.
You can install any linux over the one you already have. It will scan the harddrive(s), tell you the partition scheme, and then you can choose what to do. The person who suggested using a windows CD is right, it will work, but it wastes time. You can install any version of linux over any other, just make sure during the install that it formats the spots where the old version was.
