Knoppix problems with QTParted


I installed Knoppix 3.4 and used cfdisk, a non gui disk partitioner. I got the hang of it and prefer it over QTParted. QTParted is JUNK. Does anyone know how I can bypass it in the latest Knoppix 3.6 and use cfdisk instead? I really have a high opinion of Knoppix and like it probably better than most *nix distros. I do not like QTParted. I don't like it because I do not understand it. Still think non-gui partitioners are better.
I'm looking for a down to earth tutorial on QTParted .
Thanks

The way I started the knoppix hard disk install was to first get online. I then issued the 'su' command at a term window. The next step was the following:
#wget ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/projekte/k...oppix-inst.sh.
#chmod a+x knoppix-inst.sh
#sudo ./knoppix-inst.sh

Now time to configure. Create a new configuration.
You get promted to three different types: beginner; the debian way or everything from cd. All three of these modes brings me to that GUI QTParted.

I tried using cfdisk first--but did not reboot as was suggested after partitioning. The strange thing about cfdisk was that it did not present me with the initialization of my partition slices.
I also think that one needs to partition prior to installation and even prior to entering QTParted in the case of Knoppix 3.6. Knoppix 3.6 is becoming a problem child for me and am going to toss it for a better OS only because the installation process annoys
me.
Thanks for the info
