This is kind of tied in with my last post about the necessary usb booting files. Since some of them can't be removed, and those that can still leave like 10 files cluttering up the drive's root, I have found (by rtfm) that syslinux.cfg and its required files can be moved to its own folder.

So move everything except Knoppix/Knoppix to a folder called /syslinux, or /boot/syslinux.

It should look like:
Code Sample
order*dsl@srp:~ ls -halF /mnt/sda1/
drwxrwxrwx    5 dsl      staff        4.0k Dec 31  1969 ./
drwxr-xr-x   11 root     root         1.0k Jun 18 19:16 ../
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff       12.0k May  1 20:26 .DS_Store*
drwxrwxrwx    9 dsl      staff        4.0k Jun 15 04:26 dsl/
drwxrwxrwx    2 dsl      staff        4.0k Oct 10  2007 knoppix/
drwxrwxrwx    2 dsl      staff        4.0k Jun 18 18:37 syslinux/

order*dsl@srp:~ ls -halF /mnt/sda1/syslinux/
drwxrwxrwx    2 dsl      staff        4.0k Jun 18 18:37 ./
drwxrwxrwx    5 dsl      staff        4.0k Dec 31  1969 ../
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff         123 Dec  8  2006 boot.msg*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff        1.6k Dec  8  2006 f2*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff        1.6k Dec  8  2006 f3*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff         256 Jul 24  2004 german.kbd*
-r-xr-xr-x       1 dsl      staff       10.6k Sep 27  2007 ldlinux.sys*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff      971.5k May 31  2005 linux24*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff       33.0k Jun 13  2005 logo.16*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff      792.5k Aug 17  2007 minirt24.gz*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 dsl      staff        1.7k Jun 18 18:46 syslinux.cfg*

My question. Can /knoppix/knoppix be moved and/or renamed (say I wanted to add two different distros to my usb boot setup?)?

That's been answered in another thread (last few days) about using the knoppix_dir cheatcode. See wiki cheatcode page for more info including knoppix_name that might suit your needs.
