This works great! Has anybody worked out whether its possible to do this 
without the bootfloppy, directly from GRUB?

BTW. it would be nice if /dev/cdrom mounted the partition from /KNOPPIX 
downwards, not just the whole partition. Then one could put the 
index.html file in /KNOPPIX/index.html and keep the default bookmarks 
in the browser working.
