SFS-KNOPPIX is a kind of KNOPPIX which boots form Internet with a cloop on SFS (Self-certifying File System). SFS-KNOPPIX requires small boot loader (20MB image) and offers full KNOPPIX functions, Autoconfig, etc.

SFS-KNOPPIX makes possible to change a cloop file (root file system of KNOPPIX) at boot time. It means we don't need to burn extra CD for many KNOPPIX offshoots.

SFS-KNOPPIX uses the same cloop file of KNOPPIX. The difference is the location of cloop file and boot method. SFS-KNOPPIX can work as normal KNOPPIX. It works Autoconfig and Hard Disk installer.

SFS-KNOPPIX has three boot variations; CD-boot, USB-boot and coLinux.

The summary of benefits is as follows.

Main features:

  • Network traffic is reduced.
  • The Download image of SFS-KNOPPIX is only 20MB, although normal KNOPPIX is 700MB.
  • After boot, only necessary cloop blocks are downloaded. The blocks are compressed.
  • It requires 50MB download to boot KDE window manager.
  • SFS-KNOPPIX is compatible for normal KNOPPIX. (CD and USB boot version only)
  • It uses same kernel version and cloop file. AutoConfig loads same device drivers.
  • Hard Disk installer works in the same manner.
  • On USB version. It does not required to burn a CD-ROM.
  • The bootability is depend on BIOS on each PC.
  • On coLinux version. It can boot with any cloop file, because coLinux is independent form device drivers."
