Knoppix 3.2 vs Kill Bill

I have used both Knoppix 3.2 and Slax Killbill 5.1.0.

Knoppix has no sound but I can save config to my zip100 drive (sda4).

Killbill has sound but I don't know how to save config to my zip100 drive.

What do I do to save my configuration to zip100 drive?

I prefer to use Killbill because I have sound system recognition, but I would like to save configuration for easier url access.

Thanks for any help.

You can upgrade to Knoppix 5.0 and see if you get sound.

Saving your config should be the same in both may have to mount /dev/sda4 manually as root, however, before you can save in Killbill.

With SLAX, just make a file called modules.conf on your zip drive. Then when you shutdown SLAX should detect this file and ask you if you want to save your config. If all goes well, you will get this prompt (it's on a timer, default is no) and you can tell it to save, next time you boot, again SLAX will detect modules.conf and offer you the opportunity to load a saved configuration.

I think modules.conf has to be save in the root directory of whichever drive you put it on, eg. the first level (/). or you could place it in the modules folder and it will load itself automatically, but I'm not sure if it will be seen when shutting down.

I had a problem like that once with KNOPIX 3.2 also. I have an AMD 64 athlon board. My mouse wouldn't move and the sound didn't work either. The solution to the problem was just to upgrade. Using Knoppix 5.0 fixed both problems. Get KNOPPIX 5.0 and i bet you your sound problems will be solved.
