OK...I have figured out how to backup configs to the floppy drive with no problems, but how do you restore it once you reboot?  Is this possible?  When I reboot, the archive is zipped into a .tgz file.  What am I missing?

Try typing "knoppix restore" (without the quotes) at the boot prompt.

Thank you for the help.  I TRIED "knoppix restore" the first time, but I received an error.  So, I tried again last night, and it worked.  Maybe it was PROBABLY was, but nonetheless, I'm thrilled that there is a way (much like Basiclinux 1.8+) to save tedious settings.

Thanks again!!
