  Knoppix Pocket Reference
Full Description:
Knoppix is a portable Linux distribution replete with hundreds of valuable programs and utilities -- a veritable Swiss Army knife in bootable CD form. It includes Linux software and desktop environments, automatic hardware detection and hundreds of other quality open source programs.

Whether you're a system administrator or power user, you can use Knoppix for many different purposes. Knoppix boots and runs completely from a single CD so you don't need to install anything to your hard drive. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it.

What you do need, however, is a comprehensive reference guide so you can benefit from all that Knoppix has to offer. The Knoppix Pocket Reference from O'Reilly fits the bill. This handy book shows you how to use Knoppix to troubleshoot and repair your computer, how to customize the Knoppix CD, running RAM memory checks, recovering data from a damaged hard drive, cloning hard drives, using Knoppix as a Terminal Server, using Knoppix as a kiosk OS, scanning for viruses on a Windows system, editing the Registry of a Windows system, and much more.

The Review:
There isn't a whole lot that you can say about a book that has only 84 pages and that includes the index. The Knoppix Pocket Reference is a little book with a lot of tips and tricks on using the Knoppix Live distribution. This handy pocket reference gives you the most used commands from booting off the Knoppix CD, special tools used for forensics data recovery, system repair tools for both Windows and Linux, and how to remaster Knoppix to your own liking.

If you want to know more than the average Linux user, Knoppix Pocket Reference is an absolute essential addition to your personal library.
