Knoppix Settings Restore from USB Flash


Hey,
I couldn't find a Knoppix specific board, and I figured this is a pretty newbie question so I posted it here.
I ran Knoppix off a cd and saved my settings to a usb flash drive, which worked fine. My problem is that I can't figure out how to restore the settings.
I tried Knoppix myconfig=scan at boot, but it restored nothing.

Thanks,
PulsarSL

Try:
knoppix myconfig=/dev/sda1

or:
knoppix myconfig=/mnt/sda1

make sure also that "knoppix.sh" is on the drive...
