|What i did... with no CD drive at all|
DOS Fdisk a 60MB block for the dsl installer file, i assume you want to use floppy install. Leave the rest unpartitoned.
Boot with a network support bootdisk (i used http://www.nu2.nu/bootdisk/network/ ) and copy the knoppix file from another computer to the laptop as is said in the floppy install wiki. You need minirt24.gz in that location too or you won't get a working setup and need to start all over again.
OK when you have the knoppix file on the laptop, boot with the DSL boot floppy. skip to commandline and fdisk a swap partition (planned size - 60MB, 16MB minimum) and a work partition (the rest).
Reboot again with the DSL floppy
Start the install process... will take a while
When the thing is finished installed, remove the boot floppy, reboot.
Wait until the thing has started (takes ages... remember that your swap is set to an absurd small size compared to RAM) to the graphical interface
Open a console
Kill the 60MB FAT partition
disable swap if necessary
kill the swap
make new swap of all freespace
At this point it will most likely complain...
reboot as soon as is possible
The next time it will run at reasonable speed, and you have a working HD installation

uhh, how do i get to command line.... i let it boot off the floppy and it droped to shell... but it's limted, i can't do anything
