save work to usb flash drive or HDD


I am using Knoppix 5.1.1. live dvd on a IBM t41 laptop.
I would basically use this live distro for learning c programming and
shell scripting.
I want to save all my files either to usb flash drive or to
hdd by default
How can i do the same

I have Win XP on the laptop

Mount the partition u want to save ur work in some directory.

Work in that partition and save ur work.That should be enough isnt it.

[Check if the hdd partition is a fat partition.NTFS paritions may not be supported by the distro u are using].

To mount use command

mount /dev/hdd /tmp/some_partition

[Since the distro is a live distro u cannot save the mount points and configurations.You will have to mount the partitions every time u use the distro]
