Knoppix Install

Hi Klaus. Your new Knoppix 7 is SUPER when run using the DVD. So good, I decided I wanted it on a hard drive on one of my machines. But the HD install in the preferences list just does not work! Several attempts each just left me with sdb1, a 1KB swap partition, and sdb2, a 159GB bootable ReiserFS 3.8 partition. Any attempt to make it do any more just repeated to the same end. So, after reading your piece in issue 128, I reverted to Knoppix 6.7 and tried the HD install from that preferences list. It worked perfectly! Why did you change it for rel 7?
