    Knoppix is actually just debian on a live cd. You can downoad a program and compile and run it but it will only run from the ramdisk or some other temp location. And the next time you boot into the cd it won't be there.

    There should already be an abundance of programs ready for use on the disk. There is more than the KDE desktop, if you don't want to use that just press F1 I think at the boot prompt and pass options like the desktop you want to use and the resolution you desire, etc.

    There really isn't much to it. It can alsa be easily installed to the hardisk by using the installer if you decide you want to just open up a root terminal and do.

    and voila, your running something "close" to Debian. One of the best distros around.

    Full GNU/Linux Desktop installed in 20 minutes flat!
    No more excuses for running W--dows!
    That was taken from here
    That guide may help a bit if you decide to install. The cd version can only do so much and then there's major limitations. But it's a great start.
