from yum's homepage, they state that if the distro doesn't directly support it, then you'll have to maintain the software repository - i.e. no auto udpdate.

http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq

according to knoppix's website, I don't find any reference to YUM at all. So, you can attempt to use it - but it may not work.

Also, considering that its a live cd distro, it may not have any repositorys for YUM -- any updates will come out on the next live cd

I think you may not be understanding of what you are doing??

KNOPPIX is a live linux... meaning that it boots and runs from the disc.. without installing to the harddrive...

There IS an option to install KNOPPIX to the hard drive, but no, it does not include YUM. YUM is an RPM based tool for Yellow-Dog, Fedora, etc..distrobutions.

KNOPPIX is based on Debian and uses the APT package management system and .deb package format. If you install KNOPPIX to the hard drive you basically have a Debian system that was preconfigured for you.

Why are you hung up on Yum?? In my opinion it's really not a very good package manager anyways... but RPM isn't a very good packaging format either... *shrug*

Good Luck, I hope that cleared thing up a bit?

If you're looking for RPM based distros, Mandriva (formerly mandrake) and Redhat are the main ones that come to mind (and I see that you're running Fedora)... Is there a specific reason you need it to be RPM based? Are there certain things you're looking for in a distro?

Well, slackware normally just comes on either 1-4 cds (usually 1 & 2, others are for source, etc). I found a few links off of google.com when searching for "slackware" "dvd" ---

Use them at your own risk...
http://boncey.org/2004_12_23_make_yo...0_bootable_dvd
http://ftp.linuxcenter.ru/iso/Slackware-10.1-dvd/

I usually just download isos for cd 1 and 2 and that's all you really need.

considering that slackware does their own package management and does not natively support rpm, the answer to that is no. pkgtool is the way to go

You might be able to add it, but then you're back to square one
