I've just downloaded an ISO image of Knoppix 3.3 and burnt it to a CD. I put it in the drive on my work laptop and pressed the on button.

Bingo. I'm running a full GNU/Linux system with an X11 display and full access to my hard drive.

The people behind this are evil geniuses, and I can't thank them enough for spending the time to come up with something so good. Wherever I go now, I've got Debian in my pocket, regardless of the computer I'm using.

The only drawback seems to be that KDE is a bit heavy and doesn't work that well. I'm not sure if it's my machine or not, but IceWM works like a dream. I'm posting this entry through it.

Sadly, my other Debian woes continue. One of these days I'll figure out what on earth I'm doing. Then I'll be dangerous.

It's a pity KDE isn't working well for you - I happen to think it's the bees knees :)

KDE works like a dream, normally. But on Knoppix running from a RAM disk its a little slow. I've only got 512Mb of RAM on my machine, maybe I should invest in a little extra ;-)
