Is it possible to install KNOPPIX 4.0 live DVD onto HDD instead of booting from disk?
 
I have recently purchased KNOPPIX 4.0 live DVD edition, as a test for using linux...to see if i wanted to install...and can't figure out if it is possible to install in on a partition of my hard drive as a second operating system (other being MS windows pro) which might i add won't stop crashing (driver clash i'm still trying to figure out).
so it would be a great help if someone could tell me if it is possible to boot it from my partitioned HDD instead of the live disk, and if i can't what would you reccomend i purchase to recieve the best experience from linux.

my system is: (if needed for recommending anything)
3.2Ghz P4 socket 478 CPU
XpertVision ATI Radion X800 Graphics Card
SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS 7.1 sound card
2 x 512Mb GEiL PC3200 DDR400 RAM
ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe Motherboard
1 x 80Gb Maxtor IDE HDD (OS and application)
1 x 200Gb Seagate SATA HDD
Currently running Microsoft windows Pro w/SP2, Wanting Linux on a seperate partition)
I plan to do a clean install of windows soon to remove any problems, and would like to have a version of LINUX (what ever anyone can recommend would be best for the above system and me) as a second OS.
if anyone can help out it would be much appreciated
Cheers
Andrew

Yes it is possible, in fact on both the Knoppix web site and on the LiveCD there is a HowTo explaining how to do it.

Oh and you'll probably find that one or both of your threads gets closed as it's "frowned upon" posting basically the same thread twice in one or different forums
