Where can I download Knoppix? I can't find a reliable link anywhere. I went to linuxiso.org but it is a link that fails. Thanks, Jeremy

Are you close to the university of north carolina? Try ftp:

metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/distributions/knoppix

Make sure you download the english version, unless you like German.

Have a look at www.morphix.org too!

English version? I just grabbed a version - I think from a Virginia site - some of the docs are German; some English. Enter a flag at boot and it gives you an English keyboard and the menus of the gui are mostly English and all. I'd call it 90% internationalized. Is there a pure English version?

I used a CD-RW with no problem - a "music" CD-RW, even, because it was the only one I had that was 700 MB.

What are you trying to boot with it? If it's that 450MHz w/30MB RAM, that's probably not going to work. Not sure how much RAM DKnight had. You need 80-128 megs of RAM at least, according to the docs or you're going to have to pass a CLI-only option (I think there is one). I booted a 1.1 GHz Athlon which, at the moment, has 256 MB of memory and it didn't exactly smoke. And some game I clicked on brought the system to a crawl and it wouldn't even respond to 'kill' so I just rebooted Slack. Sweet *looking* and makes me wish *all* distros had similar hardware detection, but it's basically just a demo unless you move it to HD.

I don't think the newer one has an english version. Just boot:

knoppix lang=us

Hit the key for more info and you will see there are lots of stuff you can specify if auto detect doesn't work.

Yeah - I wouldn't expect it to zip along and some of the heavier apps may not work at all, but it should definitely run on that, assuming there are no other issues.

I booted it again today and there's actually some cool stuff on there. I haven't looked at how it's all put together, though. It just runs so I haven't needed to figure much out yet. Weird. *g*

Well. there is an english version -which I downloaded. But it runs with a german keyboard and some software is in german too, but cvan be configued! Not useful in a live distro. Hope they will cahnge it next...
But
Please try Morphix. IT is in English, has several versions and is based on Knoppix! www.morphix.org
You can get a Light-GUI version which will zip on 160MB RAM!!
