Hybrid image mode for Knoppix 8.0

Conclusion

Switching to hybrid format for the distribution of Knoppix makes it possible to skip the step of creating DVDs. With a few caveats, compatibility with reluctant firmware can be circumvented.

The non-hybrid enhanced format can still be created by flash-knoppix in order to create a fully writable system with optional encryption.
