    knoppix is easy but...

    Hey there guys,

    I recently tried knoppix 3.9 and boy was I satisfied with it

    Knoppix was really easy 2 use, I just poped in the cd and bam the next minute i'm using knoppix!
    Thats how easy it was, but the time I tried Gentoo, oh my that was HARD!!!!
    just to configure it and doo those thing, whoa, at the end i just gave up, but with linux its really easy

    But I only got one little problem, i would luv it to be used without booting it from the cd, cuz, it slows up sometime, and i dont like that verry much.

    So if ne of u guys culd help me by telling me how to actually install knoppix on my computer, (without screwing my windows xp, cuz i still wanna use my windows sometimes) without booting on the cd it will be nice.

    If you actualy find no possibilities to do that, well can u suggest me another linux version thats also has a easy instalation like knoppix, without using any codes or commands cuz i suk in those

    Anyways thanks in advance

    Yes to both. Check out the forums first, you'll see how others are dual booting.

    Honestly I am preferring Xandros and Suse to Ubuntu...Xandros does have a free distro.

    Yeah, will I already downloaded the 3 first cds for the installation of suse 9.3, and plus i'm getting it for the partion suse creates by its own, not like ubuntu.

    But I need a installation guide for suse 9.3 so can someone help me for that??

    I would stay stick with knoppix. Btw the new knoppix 4 maxi edition is out. Its a bootable DVD now with 9gb of programs! Anyways, you can mount live linux onto ur hard drive and there are manuals out there telling you how to do it. Infact I think I remember reading somewhere that knoppix 4 contains better ways of doing this but I don't know.
    Whatever you try, have fun with linux but being a MS person myself I'd advise staying away from all the codes and stuff, leave that to the pros
