Ok, that's fine with me. I just posted my additional entries from /etc/apt/sources.list. However, it would be nice if I didn't get 3 mails per week from people asking me how they can fulfil tomcat4's JDK dependency (even if this is mentioned in the package description)...

DVD is that the software needs to be free.  It would be real ashaming
if the Knoppix DVD would only contain free software and the Debian CD
made of the Debian Team would contain non-free software.

JRE 1.3 and Acrobat reader have been part of Knoppix for a long time, even the CD edition. So unless Klaus has removed them, there is still non-free software on Knoppix. It's not that I like this, but there are no fully viable free alternatives. :-(
