"Despite being a trim 75 pages of text this is a tremendously useful book if you're just getting to know Knoppix. It starts with a discussion of all of the "cheat codes" -- startup the command line arguments that can be used to configure various system attributes and then moves on tools, how to install on a hard drive, security, using Knoppix to repair Linux and Windows systems, remastering Knoppix and finally a discussion of UnionFS. Recommendation: If you're looking for a nuts and bolts book on Knoppix that gets reasonably deep into the subject, this is it. "

It's an invaluable desk-side companion."

"A short reference that does away with all the hand-holding detail, the Knoppix Pocket Reference is a great guide to how to do everything you want to do with Knoppix as well as resolve minor trouble issues...When you just need to know how to do something and don't want to drag out the six hundred page book to try to find it you will find the Knoppix Pocket Reference a great investment."
