Hello there OMEGA DOOM!

I've got your e-mail, thanks . Well, to install Knoppix into the HD, take a look here:

http://www.freenet.org.nz/misc/knoppix-install.html

You should be able to save anything to the HD with the Live disk as long as you have you windows partitions mounted and that it's in FAT32.
There's always a risk when playing around with partitions and boot loaders. I never had any problems with Linux (the same could not be said about FreeBSD though).

The new version of Knoppix seems better. It comes with a newer kernel, thus support for writing into NTFS. It also can boot from some (not many) USB-CDRoms. It's not the same stable (yet) nor is 2.6.x kernel series (yet). The rest, is not much different: If you have Knoppix installed, it means that you have Debian... so just apt-get <whatever your need> and you get the newest version. E.g:

apt-get upgrade gaim

and that will install/upgrade to the newest gaim.

About Fedora and the updates, it's possible. When you run update in Linux, it will update _all_ the programs, since a small one as Midnight Commander up to security programs. I'd recommend you upgrading _only_ the security programs and say, upgrade XChat, if you need a new function present only in a newer version .

I think that's it!

Good luck!
