I have tried to burn 4 Knoppix cdr's using different programs

indicate that if you can sucessfully burn a cd with the Knoppixxxx.iso
file that it should boot. That has not worked. I was wondering if I
need to try using the el torrito boot feature plus the image.
BTW these are my first attempts at using Debian SID apps to burn a
cd. Any tips or experiances would be appreciated. Thanks!
I suspect you're burning the .ISO as a file to the CD, rather than using
the .ISO to burn an image. If you mount one of your burned CDs, do you
see a bunch of files, or just the KNOPPIX.ISO file? If the latter,
you're just not clicking on the correct options in your burner software.
I eventually found that the easiest way for me is to use ecliptroaster
(apt-get install eroaster). There's like five buttons down the left-hand
side; the third one or so is the one you want (sorry, don't have the app
accessible at the moment to be more precise).
