is the first place that I'd look.
Then the other place seems to be the knoppix wiki
where there appears to be some instructions.
One of the things that I found out when I played at having knoppix on my hard drive was that it can be a bit of a bugger when it comes to networking it.
Someone said that I might have been better placed going for Kanotix
instead. It's a slightly more polished version of knoppix and is more up to date package wise (KDE and some other ones).
Or another new user type distro like Mandriva, SuSE or Fedora (first two I've used successfully, but never had any luck with the Fedora).
You only problems might be, the graphics card as ATi driver(s), I understand, can be a pain to get installed (nvidia have better linux support and I've never had any problems with them).
Plus you seem to have an SATA hdd as well - I understand that they can also be a bit of a bugger to get going sometimes (can't say for certain as I only have EIDE hdd - just what I've heard/read).
If you do look into kanotix, you can do the download and burn under linux. The only thing is to make sure that you get the english language version (if thats what you speak
), plus get the MD5sum file for the download as well. To check the download, you also need to get something to verify the MD5sum of the download so it can be compared with the file one that you get from the download mirror.
theres a utility here
that can do that under windows.
Then if the downloads OK, you just need to check on how to burn ISO's with whatever software came with your burner.
Hope that helps some.
