How do I install Puppy and Knoppix on flash drive?


I am fairly new to Linux so please pardon my ignorance.

I am using Puppy 431 which is installed in sdb1 of my flash drive. Whenever I try to install Knoppix from a live CD, it also goes into sdb1 and overrides Puppy. My objective is to install Knoppix in sdb4 of my flash drive (which is unused and has more than 2GB free) and be able to choose between the two distros at start-up.

How can I do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

OK Anisha. Thanks ever so much. I'll definitely try to fathom all of this as soon as I get the chance. Thanks once again.
