Knoppix Hacks: Tips and Tools for Hacking, Repairing, and Enjoying Your PCby Kyle Rankin
Synopses & Reviews
If you think Knoppix is just a Linux demo disk, think again. Klaus Knopper created an entire Linux distribution on a bootable CD (and now a DVD) so he could use his favorite open source tools on any computer. This book includes a collection of tips and techniques for using the enormous amount of software Knoppix offers-not just to work and play, but also to troubleshoot, repair, upgrade, and disinfect your system without having to install a thing.
Book News Annotation:
Knoppix, a demonstration disk for the Linux operating system, can also be used in a variety of "secret" applications, including desktop maintenance, file system repair and creating temporary wikis, nameservers and file servers. With the blessing of the original creator of Knoppix, this guide shows computer users how to hack, repair and enhance the enjoyment of their PC without having to permanently download any software. Rankin, a systems administrator who has written extensively about Linux in several books, walks users through the hidden features of Knoppix in a step-by-step method that uses helpful graphics, not to mention a Knoppix Live DVD.
