Knoppix starts up with the hard disk(s) mounted read only. To save a
file to hard disk, you must choose a partition which you are willing
to switch to read/write. Then, find the item in one of the Knoppix
menus that does the switch for you. Alternatively, you can use one of
the several suggestions already made to switch to read/write using
commands at a console prompt. This will surely involve running as
root. To become root on a console in Knoppix, find the menu item, root
console, or something like that. You do not need to know a root
