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,
