Knoppix on the Stinkpad.. err.. Thinkpad
Being that Knoppix runs pretty good on my primary box, I'm trying it out on the
Knoppix unfortunately has no documentation bundled (that I could find) that tells you how to install it to a hard drive. After doing some looking around, I found that if you boot to KDE, launch a prompt, type "su" (for SuperUser) and then type "knx2hd", the process begins.
You do have to know how to partition a drive correctly if you don't meet the minimum req's (512MB of RAM and 2GB free, I fell short in the RAM department). I found this to be pretty easy to do. As I write this, Knoppix is being installed on the Thinkpad 390. Will it work only having 128MB of RAM and a 3GB drive? Dunno. Guess we'll find out. (grin)
