Save changes in Knoppix

Hi, I've downloaded Knoppix 3.3, and it runs directly from the CD. But when I shutdown the system, all the changes I've made on it go away, and I have to customize everything again... I want to know if there's a way of saving the changes you've made on the system, so when it starts it is how you left it... Thanks! :)

a CD is read only media, you can not save any configs made to the CD -- you would need to save them to a floopy or elsewhere.

Yes, I know I can't save my configs in a CD... but I have the HD of my computer, and Knoppix have access to it!

that doesnt really matter what you see. i used knoppix but it doesnt really seem to be worth reconfiguring everything on every start up. i believe that what you see is actually just the root of the cd and not your hard disk.
plus linux doesnt support FAT32 system.

i suggest that you make a partition and install linus there

#1 - The point of this question was a way to save your knoppix settings to your hard drive, so that when you reboot it looks the same (the URL will show you how)

#2 - linux can use fat32 via the vfat filesystem type just fine.
