I just searched different topics from google how to get it install , but everything went vain
The command knx-hdinstall in one site and knoppix-installer in another threw me disdain

Last time I installed a Knoppix to my HDD, I used the command 'knoppix-install' which needs to be run as root (with sudo if I remember right).

The instructions are a little tricky to find, but they ARE there if you're running the LiveCD.

Now, I did this with a slightly older version than you might be using, but I'd think they still use the same command.

If you can't get it to work still, tell us what Knoppix version it is, so maybe a user of that exact version can provide specific advice.
