Is there a way to update my frugal install (The way Ubuntu update periodically sends updates to their users)? Or maybe just a way to do it through the command line -- for example through apt

Mount the partition that contains your KNOPPIX file
Mount the new ISO file. Example:
Copy the new KNOPPIX file and minirt24.gz (as root) from the ISO mount point, overwriting the old ones.
Copy linux24 if the kernel has been upgraded (not usually needed).
