Skype ( provides an easy to install/use Voice over IP solution. Sadly, sadly, it is not Open Source and not likely to be opened any time soon.

At least with Knoppix 3.9, one can easily download the .deb package from the above mentioned web site and install it with

  dpkg -i skype_...deb

Unless you have installed Knoppix, this installation is not permanenent. To make this a "permanent" change you can use a persistent disk image or remaster the Knoppix CD.
