the knoppix bootfloppy does this already automaticaly

you can simply copy /KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX to your harddrive and
either use the bootfloppy or boot from the CD and eject it
shortly before it tries to autodetect the KNOPPIX image.
(this is sometimes also refered as "poor man's install")

i think what you want is already possible ;-)

you can also put the image on a server and use network boot.
that can be done either with the terminal-server on a
running knoppix or with GRUB (i recently posted a small howto
in this list). the network boot eliminates all hardware
requirements, except a CPU, 128MB RAM and a network card and
gfx card+monitor, of course...
