Knoppix is IMHO a great idea for people to learn Linux. It offers just about everything you need (including OpenOffice) right on a CD. And when you get good (confident) you can install to the hard drive. I use Knoppix for system rescues (when windows is totally hosed), Linux demos for my clients (look Linux runs from a CD) and just to have Linux with me where ever I go.
Here's a few screenshots of my Linux desktop (not Knoppix)...the first one is scary

Demolinux is also an excellent live-cd distro for those unsure of using linux....the new version of Suse is also extremely nice looking and works like a charm (so far!)

Knoppix is regarded as a "Live-CD" distro. I got my copy of Knoppix 3.5 LinuxTag Edition the other day, which I ordered from Lehmanns Online Bookshop in Germany. It's got a bundle of software and lots of Windowmanagers, to ship it to the UK (where I live) cost 6.15 Euro and the DVD itself cost 10 Euro.

Not bad,eh?

Try www.knoppix.net, as it has a comprehensive set of information about this distro.

I disagree. I hated Knoppix.

I find the best linux live cd I have ever used was Slax from http://slax.linux-live.org it is based off of Slackware meaning its great.  It is by far the best Linux Live.

I've also tried out Slax and it is quite good, I would say the KDE tools might be a little underpowered compared to others, but otherwise it is great. The linux-live.org website has got scripts etc. to create your own Live-CD too.

Next to slax i would say PHLAK (professional linux assult kit). There is no extra crap like in knoppix/slax, such as 3 pdf viewers. It has everything you need from a port sniffer to a complete wardriving kit.

Knoppix falls at the bottom of the barrel for me

In my case I run Mandrake 10+ Community herte on my personal box (which is a 3 GHz P4 Northwood box with an Abit IC7-Max3 motherboard core), as I use Linux for many things including email and surfing (while folding for Folding@Home) to here and other forums. I do not use it for a security box, I have a router that is secured many ways for THAT front-end protection. If you want a Linux-as-router LAN front-end security box, I tend to agree with the choices as above, though I also like Astaro Linux for some of its features for that purpose.

It should recognize your broadband  internet connection automatically unless you are on a dial up connection. They can be a real bear to get working If you even have a modem that will work with linux. good luck

I use Knoppix and love it; however, I have found several other live-cd distros that I like for various reasons.  Look at this site "http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php" --- I have tried many of the live cd's and really like the Morphix based ones.  They seem to just work better with more hardware.  As far as configuring dial-up internet, download a "Winblow$" program called dialguard (it's free)  run it from "Winblow$" and connect to the internet the way you normally do (Netzero---Juno__ whatever).  Most ISP's use their own programs that slaughter your username and password into nonesense so you have to use their spying slaughterware.  Dialguard captures this info ( it looks weird like "GXsr37:4V3.1:user@netzero.net" and password like "8d,nT.q3" ) copy this info and the phone number because this is what you need to type into kppp (or pon,wvdial,etc.) to dial into NZ or Juno or Earthlink.  Have fun!
