In short, about the Knoppix Hard Disk Scripts:

To install knoppix on hard disk

  • knx-hdinstall
    • Copies the KNOPPIX like system (compressed filesystem) in the hard disk). See: Hd Based HowTo .
    • Use with Knoppix 3.3 and earlier.
  • knoppix-installer
    • Installs a Debian like system (uncompressed filesystem) in the hard disk. See Install FAQ and Knoppix Installer .
    • Use with Knoppix 3.4 and later.

KNOPPIX (compressed) is still a KNOPPIX (similar to the CD-ROM KNOPPIX). So, boot parameter "lang=en" should work

To just save your settings and files

  • knoppix-mkimage
    • Used to create a 'persistent home' image on a media, that allows you to save your files and settings without installing the whole system on the hard disk.
    • Use the "knoppix home=scan" boot option to search for and use the stored image.
    • You can choose to encrypt the image with 256-bit AES, which is generally considered secure, though not by all.
    • Using Unionfs (A Stackable Unification File System) the writable modification branch is saved, in other words, the changes you make to the Knoppix filesystem.
