I tried it with Knoppix 3.3, because I REALLY didn't want to have to
install Mandrake. For some reason it (Knoppix) crashes on boot up
immediately after loading the kernel. I've tried almost every cheatcode
for Knoppix I could dig up and all to no avail.

Hah! I'll check it out later.
I'm actually doing the install from my notebook downstairs via SSH so
I'm copying and pasting where the commands look easy to mess up.
I suppose at a certain point I'm going to have to install an SSH server
Anyone have a suggestion as to which one, and WHEN it should be installed.
Preferably just before I disconnect the host system I suppose - is that
Total Linux Newbie (But trying to cure it)
