You have to make changed in the grub.conf file to include knoppix.

The file is easy to understand and it is located in

/etc/grub/grub.conf and i guess some distros also have a simlink of it in the /etc/grub.conf or /etc/grub/grub.conf

knoppix is a bootable CD. Unlike other bootable mediums, I don't believe the boot sector of the CD to be right up front. You will probably need to do some research into the El Tolito Boot specification.

This is of coarse assuming you want to use the chainloader command to get the KNOPPIX boot prompt (lilo). If you just want to boot knoppix with a particular knoppix kernel, you may be able to get away with it just like any other Linux boot.
