Hi Uwe,
at current, Knoppix is a mix of testing and unstable. But you can edit
apt configs in /etc/apt/* to set your desired distro. You can also use
apt-get dist-upgrade to have all you stuff upgraded to one distro,
unstable. It is difficult to downgrade to stable and will in most
attempts lead to breakage. Most people will just reinstall if they want
to downgrade and just do a 'dpkg --get-selections' to get a list of what
they want to install.
