The distribution is available for download as minimal, dual-arch Live CD ISO images of approximately 12MB in size, one for each of the supported languages (English and German).
While the ISO images must be first written on CD discs, they will be bootable on any computer that supports the 32-bit (i386) and/or 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures.
Minimal boot prompt designed to boot KNOPPIX from a USB flash drive
When booting the CD image from the BIOS of a computer, the user will encounter a minimal boot menu where he or she must press the Enter key to start the distribution.
It will load in a couple of seconds and starts monitoring the USB interface for a drive that contains the KNOPPIX operating system. If the USB thumb drive is detected, it will boot the distribution into the live environment.
