Unless you run it threw a networked computer somehow. But that is beyond my understanding.

are you trying to ask if you can run live linux WITHOUT a cd...??

then that would be no, as is the definition of "live" linux

if you mean can you INSTALL a copy of linux FROM the CD, then that is a yes... then you would have a Linux computer....

Read the manuals on the CD as to how to install onto HDD

I think on Knoppix... its on thier website:... yes it is:

Installation Procedure
To get Knoppix installed onto your hard drive:

1. Boot the Knoppix CD.

2. When the boot prompt comes up, choose your language.
Most of us speak English, so we'll type:

boot: knoppix lang=en

then press ENTER (you don't type the 'boot:' part, of course)

3. Wait till the system is fully launched, including the KDE desktop

4. Press CTRL-ALT-F1, to get a root console. You should see a shell prompt

5. Type: knx-hdinstall
