I haven't actually used knoppix before.

Am I to understand that knoppix pre-installs everything on the iso?
How does knoppix save the user data?

knoppix lets you save the config files to hd and/or create a persistent file on the hd for the usr.  Works well, but as has been said, It runs slower than dsl on older machines.

As I see it, "much of what we know today as dsl" comes from Robert's hard work and innovative thinking.  DSL actually has very little in common with Knoppix once the knoppix-autoconfig script finishes its run.

i agree 100% mikshaw. mega-props to both Robert and John!

Torp..Hey, I'm glad you are excited about k5 but I was not compareing dsl and knoppix. I was pointing out that knoppix was loaded with excessive duplication..
.it does need a powerfull unit to run well... and needs.. a good note pad,  a mediun fast loading text editer with spell check,  and a full blown word processor....Joe, mary,and jane added to that is just bloat.
.I agree it has a lot of cool stuff..maby they deleted the bloat in 5..will get on that...any way's just talk

Knoppix can also take less time to boot
see "Acelerated knoppix"
it's a knoppix with a cloop file with it's block reanged for booting more quickly
