    You should try and get it to boot from a USB pen drive. That's fun.

    I must warn you that installing Knoppix onto the HD is supposed to be fairly difficult. If you give it a shot and decide that it isn't worth it, there is a number of different Linux flavors you can try out. :)

    boot to cd
    open a terminal window
    TYPE THE FOLLOWING LINES, ONE AT A TIME:
    su root
    knoppix-installer (I tried knoppix-installer-latest-web but this didn't work for me)

    I had to do the CD version (not Debian or beginner). Or I kept getting su root errors.

    Hope this helps,
