Just my individual setup.
First the timestamp file is created. Than the partition containing the
KNOPPIX / file system is booted, so the access times are set on the ext2
filesystem. Then, a find-script creates the list of files changed since
the modification date of the timestamp file.

A cleaner way would be running a kernel with the open()-trace patch.
