Hi Hugh,

If you are already using a script for calling adduser and starting ssh
daemon, you can also replace the /etc/gshadow symlink by
/KNOPPIX/etc/gshadow before calling adduser.

You can put a script named knoppix.sh in the /KNOPPIX directory on the
CD and modify syslinux.cfg on the boot floppy image boot.img (add boot
option "floppyconfig"). Then everything will start automatically at
Knoppix boot.
