Japanese

SFS-KNOPPIX is a kind of KNOPPIX which boots form Internet with a cloop on SFS(Self-certifying File System). It 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.

The following figures show the difference of Normal KNOPPIX and SFS-KNOPPIX.

Normal KNOPPIX (iso image 700MB) SFS-KNOPPIX (iso image 20MB)
Root File System (cloop file) is obtained form SFS via Internet with SFS.

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.

Reference: The idea of SFS-KNOPPIX comes from UML-KNOPPIX on SFS.
