yeah, i get the feeling most newbies nowadays don't want to burn the cd and want to prepare the disk from within windows (this is not really 'embedded' it's just using the files from 'embedded'). that's fine until you want two partitions.
my advice: use an external partitioner e.g gparted.
Also, you don't really need to boot 'from' the 2nd partition,
you can boot from the 1st but tell dsl to 'load' the knoppix image from the 2nd.
This is a good idea, and one i always recommend, by seperating the knoppix image to another partition, you avoid all sorts of problems.
You can't use chmod,chown.. etc on fat16/32 but you can in the ramdisk (/home/dsl) which gets backed up in backup.tar.gz. it does take more time as the files/sizes build up, for the backup process. I tend to archive old stuff elsewhere if the file gets too big.
