(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knoppix) wiki. The wiki and other features found on Knoppix.net (http://www.knoppix.net) are all about Knoppix. Knoppix.net (http://www.knoppix.net) is a resource for users, developers, and testers of Knoppix. The official website for Knoppix is at Klaus Knopper's website (http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html).
Knoppix is a Free and Open Source Live Linux CD based on Debian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian) GNU/Linux. Live Linux CD means that the computer boots and runs completely from USB. Nothing is installed on your hard drive in order for you to experience many of the Open Source software packages available. Knoppix includes recent Linux software and desktop environments, including such applications as OpenOffice.org, Abiword, Gimp, Konqueror, Firefox, Apache, PHP, MySQL and hundreds of other quality open source programs. (See "complete list of packages included with Knoppix" for more information.) Knoppix.net (http://www.knoppix.net) allows you to look at the FAQ's and Documentation, participate in discussions on the forums, or just burn a copy of it and try it out! - You can download it ( CD/DVD size ISO files, or USB HERE ) or buy it from a CD distributor, more CD info on the download / buy page (http://www.knoppix.net/get.php).
The documentation found here is organized in several sections. The goal is to take you from the very beginning to boot via USB all the way to advanced applications of the Live Linux CD.
