1) There are two problems with option label dos for loading FreeDos balder.img. There is no memdisk file in /boot/isolinux folder and the isolinux.cfg sintax is wrong

2) KNOPPIX incorrectly guesses that my serial mouse uses the "Microsoft" protocol, with the result that my mouse pointer hops around almost at random. It works correctly if I edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf replacing the mouse protocol "Microsoft" with "MouseSystems" or "auto". Since the "auto" protocol would presumably work with a "Microsoft" mouse, too, that would seem to be a better default for KNOPPIX to use.

Knoppix 5.1.1's knoppix-autoconfig script has an error with regard to "default" myconfig. In the case where knoppix has been remastered with knoppix.sh and configs.tbz in the CD root (/) the test for knoppix.sh is wrong. Line 1310 should be changed from: MYCONFIG="$(ls -1d /cdrom/KNOPPIX/[Kk][Nn][Oo][Pp][Pp][Ii][Xx].[Ss][Hh] 2>/dev/null)" To:
MYCONFIG="$(ls -1d /KNOPPIX/[Kk][Nn][Oo][Pp][Pp][Ii][Xx].[Ss][Hh] 2>/dev/null)" This will allow a default myconfig (e.g. if the myconfig= argument is not given) to detect the presence of the knoppix.sh script.

Knoppix 5.1.1's knoppix-autoconfig script has an omission with regard to setting the timezone. The script set /etc/local time around line 557. It should also update the file /etc/timezone:
rm -f /etc/timezone echo "$TZ" > /etc/timezone
