Question Knoppix: setting default cheat codes

Background: I want to use a DVD to boot a basic poor man's install (have no need to mess with grub: don't want to mess up windows) for knoppix 7.0.5. However, I would like to set the default to boot using "knoppix64 no3d".

I assume that I will need to somehow modify the iso before I burn it, but I have no clue how to do so at all. (extract, do something, re-package? How do I extract and rebuild the iso?). What is the something that I need to do?

I know that <> deals with this, but I could not understand enough to help.

I never remastered knoppix for an ISO (I should study it like you) but I have a knoppix on an USB stick.
So, start your knoppix live CD, install it on an USB Memory Stick with the knoppix menu for it, then boot later from the USB.
If you dont have a PC booting from the USB, boot it from the CD drive with UBCD, submenu plop bootloader.
So, you save your time studying the remastering of knoppix.
And, on your USB stick, you will perhaps have to put the no3d into the conf file of the knoppix boot sequence (I think knoppix use isolinux as default).

And: later, after the use of linux, you can start a CD remastering? (personally I never does it and dont see the necessity for my use; I prefer a conf file change of the bootloader on the USB.. quicker.. flexibel.. dont need to re-re-re-burn CDs).

But: I think, it could be like (I never does it)..
- Launch isomaster under linux
- load the knoppix ISO from the knoppix page onto the HDD
- edit the conf file of the knoppix iso of the HDD and put no3d into the boot line
- close and save the ISO from the HDD
- burn that new modified HDD ISO on a new CD with brasero
Im currently loading the ISO in order to see if that description is good enough (where is the conf file etc.). I will update it if you have questions.
