no problem. glad i could help. i'm actually pretty new to linux myself. only been running it several months now. i copied 3 iso's to cd's before i figured out that i was burning them wrong. the reason you can't save anything is because there's nothing on your hard drive right now to save to. no partitions or file system. there should be an install icon on the linux desktop. i'm not exactly sure what knoppix has but i'm sure there is a way to install it. since there is no data on the drive to worry about you are pretty much free to experiment with partition tools that are on the knoppix cd. read some of the documentation from the cd to learn how. basically when you install you create 3 partitions and format them with a file system. the partitions will be root, swap and home. you divide up the size of your drive for these 3 partitions.
i wish i had an empty hard drive to practice and experiment with, loool.
so how do you like running the knoppix live cd? it's a very good distro. a couple of other distros that are popular are ubuntu and PCLinuxOS. sometimes there are hardware problems with different distros and you may have to try working with another distro. knoppix is pretty good tho.
