Installing Knoppix on a system you want to work with is not a good idea
IMHO. Since it is not a real Debian, the package management will go
crazy if you want install updates (lets say, security updates) or
additional packets. Knoppix is1 an excellent distribution, as long as
you leave it on the CD.

Just to save you from worries.
