1. Knoppix is a live distribution of Linux, based on Debian GNU/Linux. The term live distribution means that the operating system --Linux-- is running from the DVD instead of being installed on the hard disk of the computer. The advantages of the concept are, that you get a preconfigured self booting DVD with a lot of software installed and ready to run without configuration.
