During boot, Knoppix did recognize USB drive as /dev/sdb, internal SATA drive as /dev/sda. Now the problem: after booted into Knoppix, mounted USB drive become /dev/sda1, which was wrong. My internal SATA drive's 1st partition could not be accessed, since /dev/sda1 pointed to USB drive. But SATA drive's 2nd partition was OK as /dev/sda2. I could not unmount /dev/sda1 since Knoppix thinks it is in use (it is actually USB, so it is in use!).
I guess there is a bug in Knoppix 5.1.1. If there is a work around, please point me to the right direction. Thanks!
I've resolved this problem in this mode:
ls -lha /dev/sda1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 1 2008-12-13 11:37 /dev/sda1
sudo mknod /dev/hd1 b 8 1
sudo mount /dev/hd1 /home/knoppix/Desktop/hd1
After, you can operate with standard "ntfs" kernel module ("sudo modprobe ntfs") or with ntfs-3g.
