From the Knoppix cheatcodes file
These options (can be combined) work from the ISOLINUX bootprompt:
  • knoppix toram Copy CD to RAM and run from there
  • knoppix tohd=/dev/hda1 Copy CD to HD partition and run from there
  • knoppix fromhd Skip checking for Knoppix on CD-ROM
  • knoppix fromhd=/dev/hda1 Boot from previously copied CD-Image
  • knoppix bootfrom=/dev/hda1 Access Image then boot from previously copied CD-Image (enables booting from NTFS / ReiserFS)
  • knoppix bootfrom=/dev/hda1/KNX.iso Access image, boot from ISO-Image
Here you go!
