right. I am not a specialist of jigdo but i think that jigdo need files
directy on the iso9660 cdrom filesystem. Knoppix (x86 and the mib ppc
version) uses a compressed iso9660 filesystem aka cloop and all the debian
system on it is contained in a big file (/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX in the x86
Soon you will be able to make your own knoppix cd using debootstrap and some
knoppix debs, in your case this could be a better solution. In fact this is
what i have already done to port it on ppc, but some configuration was to be
made at hand.
