Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

For the sort of operation you are doing I agree that you use Knoppix - it just makes everything easier.
However if you don't have access to a knoppix download then...
If the windows partition is listed in etc/fstab make sure that it is mounted as user,rw in the options column. If it isn't there don't worry, you seem to be able to mount it anyway.
Seeing as you are command line only at this point try running the copy command(s) with root privileges either with sudo [command] or log on as root for the purpose.
Thanks, I followed you suggestion and after it didnt recognize my external harddrive and 2 usb-sticks it finally decided to accept the crappiest on with 1GB storage place.
My next problem now is: I have one folder with loads of small files, about 1000 of them, each 1-10mb big. A cut command would help but I couldnt find one on google (seems like cutting in linux is something completely diffrent then in windows)
If anyone could give me a hint here I believe I'd finally be ready with this D!:
i don't know what you mean with cutting. for copying do:
# cp -rf /mnt/windows /<YourUSBStick>
i don't know what device your usb stick is. probably /dev/sda1. if the usb is mounted automatically then look in /etc/fstab and you will see where it is mounted. then replace <YourUSBStick> with it. if it is /dev/sda1 the command should then look like this:
# cp -rf /mnt/windows /dev/sda1
your usb stick should also be mounted read-write of course.
