Knoppix CD or DVD clarification


I know this is probably not a smart question but I can't find what the difference is between the knoppix live cd and the live dvd. From some other threads it looks like extra applications, can anyone verify that?

Thanks!

Diff

You could always diff the two pieces of media.

diff is a tool

diff is a linux/unix program

If you could mount both the cd and dvd you could diff the directory listing of each:

From Ubuntu/Kubuntu after mounting the cdrom on /media/cdrom

find /media/cdrom -print > cdromoutput

Then mount the dvd

find /media/cdrom -print > dvdoutput

diff cdromoutput dvdoutput

Thanks!!

cmnorton,

Let me just say thanks, I know its probably annoying to answer questions like that, but I am learning. (currently working my way through "Beginning Bash Programming" "c for dummies" and a few others. But its not an easy thing to pick up, and takes time.
anyway thanks again.

Maybe someday I'll be able to return some of what I've been given to future noobs.
