For some reason I never got any e-mails about this thread being updated...I just thought the title change threw everyone off!
Nice desktops everyone!
Knoppix is just a "live" version of Debian, though, isn't it? Can it be installed to the HDD?
It can be done, but not easily. There are a few howto's on how to do it.

It has very few games compared to other distros and even other versions of Mandrake, it is slow booting from the CD, Graphic Frame Rates in game are terrible, and it doesn't have a driver for my WiFi card. I should have burned this POS to CD-RW before I wasted a CD-R on it, oh well. Now I remember why I don't use Linux...
What Wifi card do you have (chipset would be most helpful). I have used both 802.11b and 802.11g internal and PC cards in Linux, and they all have had drivers. I did have to wait a bit when 802.11g first came out for drivers though. Drivers exist, they just may not be integrated into the kernel yet and/or the makers of MandrakeMove/Knoppix/Gnoppix didn't bother to apply the patches. There's also a good howto out there on how to roll your own Knoppix, ie, take Knoppix, customize it, and burn it back to CD.
Too much effort? Maybe. Good way to get your hands dirty with Linux? Probably. Fun for geeks? Definately.
