Chapter 2. An Introduction to the WFTL Edition Knoppix Disk

Chapter 2. An Introduction to the WFTL Edition Knoppix Disk

Included with this book is a full-featured Linux distribution that runs entirely from the CD-ROM. The WFTL Edition Knoppix CD is a Debian-based Linux distribution that runs entirely from your PC's CD-ROM drive. That's right. You can run Linux on your system without having to change your system or uninstall Windows.

Note

Because it is running from the CD drive, WFTL Knoppix does run slower than if you actually install Linux and run it from the hard disk. Keep in mind that the performance you experience from the CD is not indicative of the performance you can experience from a Linux hard-disk install. At their fastest, CD-ROM drives are no match for even the slowest hard disk drive.

You should also know that the version of Knoppix included with this book is not the official version but one that has been slightly modified to provide you with a comprehensive companion to the software described in this book. I would like to express my admiration and thanks to Klaus Knopper, the creator of Knoppix, for his fine work. But any questions regarding the included disk should be directed to me via the WFTL-LUG or the forums on my Web site.
