do you mean something like
From the linux tag forum (when it's online ;-)
Now you can either make the final ISO image for burning or you can test it
by symlinking the KNOPPIX directory in a root directory of a partition e.g.
ln -s /mnt/master/KNOPPIX KNOPPIX
then you can make a boot floppy :
dd if=/mnt/master/KNOPPIX/boot.img of=/dev/fd0
and boot off that, _without the cd in the drive_, when looking for the CD
it will look for a Directory called "KNOPPIX" on /dev/hda1 a2 a3 b1 b2 etc.
etc. if it finds one then it will say "accessing CD on /dev/hda1" and use
that as the CD
