i'm wroking on a version with GRUB. it also supports loading linux
over the net and only requires a NFS and TFTP server. almost any
unix machine should work for that :-)

its possible if one of your partitions is FAT32. in that case you can copy
KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX to that drive and use the bootfloppy

did you include the network driver for your client when the knoppix
terminal-server configuration asked for the drievrs?
and you should not select all drivers, say at most 10 or so. the
space in the generated miniroot file is limited and you wont see an
error even if not all drivers fit on the disk.
