converting Knoppix into writeable system

Knoppix Live is basically a read only system. How can I convert this system into a writeable system to save files I download to as fat32 partition or a USB drive.

how can modify knoppix to be write and read?

Is there any way to edit knoppix so I can write to the drives Knoppix sees when it is running ?

How would I install Knoppix if the iso I downloaded is a read only system ?

Is Knoppix able to install on one of two partitions on a slave drive and be dual boot ?

I look forward to your reply

either installing or modifying

How can I install Knoppix from the read only cd ?

Is there any way to change Knoppix to also be a write/read system ?

Can Knoppix be a dual booting system ?

modifying boot up files

Hi Reddazz,

Thank you very much sending me to "here". It has a tremendous wealth of
information that I will be reading. I came across a FAQ which showed me how to save a file and it worked well. Is there a way to modify Knoppix so it will
automatically set itself up upon boot up to be able to write to a partition on
a drive ?

Does the KBE program automatically write to a cdrom or does the dvd writer have to be mounted first and if it does, could this also be done in Knoppix before bootup ? I made a iso cd in a cd-rw disc so I could edit any file I believe with ISOBUSTER program. Knoppix is really very interesting.

I am a old user of Compuserve dial up in my house. Have you any experiences in how to set up a telephone dial up in Knoppix ?

Thanks for your help.
