Create a persistent KNOPPIX disk image

Knoppix will allow you to create a persistent image which will save your settings and files after each use.

To create a persistent disk image, after booting to your USB flash drive, select the penguin icon from the taskbar and select Configue > Create a persistent KNOPPIX disk image. A dialog box will open asking you to select the drive on which to create the image. Choose the drive that corresponds to your USB flash drive; sdb1 in this example.

You will then be prompted to set the size of the drive. Here I accepted the default (100MB).

The next time that you boot Knoppix from the flash drive, you will be asked if you wan to use the persistent disk image. Select Yes and continue.
