when I do apt-get install mozilla-browser

This should NOT be done unless you know exactly what you are doing!
It also wants to remove many other tings I actually need, like
e2fsprogs or nfs-kernel-server.
How can I install the mozilla-browser without loosing other needed
or even essential packages? (An older version of mozilla would be
acceptable for me.)
I found a similar question under
but unfortunately this guy never got an answer. Hopefully I will have more
Thanks for any help!
PS: I run a disk installation of knoppix, maybe knoppix 3.4
It is my understanding (and older experience), that installing Knoppix
and then converting to Debian causes "issues" (which is why it's
generally recommended to just start from Debian to begin with). It looks
like you've run into some of those issues.
My guess is that in order to convert to Debian, lots of Knoppix-specific
apps have to be removed. I'd make a list of those things that are being
uninstalled, then let Debian do what it wants, afterwhich you can
reinstall those things manually.
