Book excerpts:

Knowing Knoppix it's a pretty short book, stuffed with step-by-step guides with colorful illustrations about a clever product that can run a Linux on your PC or laptop in a single CD - with no installation. Yes, a Linux system with the full graphical desktop environment, networking and sound - with no installation necessary.

How Knoppix really works anyway? Simply insert the Knoppix CD and off you go, with an instant Linux system. Knoppix leaves your existing software untouched. In fact, Knoppix can run on a computer with no hard disk at all! After running Knoppix, simply take the CD out of the drive. The computer will behave as if nothing has happened.

The general philosophy of Knoppix is to access disks in read-only mode as much as possible. This is ideal for beginners, because it protects against accidents.

This book is designed to help you run Linux for the very first time. As you will see, Knoppix is perfect for Linux newcomers. Linux isn't going away any time soon. That is why learning it is an investment in your time that will pay off for years to come.

This book is meant for people who are at least reasonably familiar with computers. For example, it is assumed that you know your way around your computer's mouse, keyboard, CD drive, and so on.

Thats's it. Read this fine book, and dip your feed in the world of Linux.
