a console?...

I haven't actually downloaded a copy of knoppix as yet. When I browed the Knoppix homepage they advised downloading a file sharing program in order to get the entire file to burn to cd.

They made it sound awfully complicated... talking about ISO, images, troubleshoots etc...

Is there a straight forward step by step to installing Knoppix?

Download the ISO
To check the iso, follow these instructions
To burn the iso, follow these instructions.
Put the cd in your cd drive
Boot from the cd
When in Knoppix, find either the terminal or the console (may be konsole, btw) and type in knoppix-installer. Follow the prompts.

Ta-daaa!

just download it from: http://www.linuxiso.org

you will have a file ending in .iso - check the md5sum and burn it as an image using whatever m$ app you have:

instructions:
http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/howtoburn.html

then just insert the cd and boot - you can use knoppix without installing or writing to your hdd. work your way around, and read posts here, etc. - if you want to permanently install, check tutorials at www.knoppix.net and here.

Ah, much obliged. I can't praise this site enough.

I am currently working on my own website and it will have a section on the open source movement would it be ok to link to this site?

It's the least I can do for all the help everyone has given me.
