Pardon me if my ignorance is showing but having created a swap partition
on the HD (it's suggested in the book) couldn't you instruct Knoppix to
save it's environment variables there? (ok - that sound's like a newbie
question doesn't it.)
If the nature of the swap partition doesn't allow it, knoppix will save
it's environment in a 'small' file on the harddrive. Seems worth the
few meg cost to make it easier. I think booting with something like $
knoppix scan or whatever will find the file every time.
