Knoppix 3.4 has AirSnort already installed, so you can try using that version. It is hard to install programs on Knoppix because so many of the directories are read-only. A way around it is to make a several ramdisks, copy the necessary directories, and mount them over the existing directories. It's not impossible, but it involves a lot of work and a lot of ram. At the very least, you will need to create new /var and /usr directories. You would be better off using Knoppix 3.4.
A LiveCD created with bootcd makes it easier to install new packages because some of the directories are copied to the ramdisk. I use a customized LiveCD with Gnome(I dislike KDE) and the /usr directory is 40 megs. The /usr in Knoppix is ~1.5 gigs.
