Okay, the state of remastering knoppix distributions has gotten an awful
lot easier since last I looked. :) For just changing the default
language and bootup options, there are even *gasp* widows wrappers for
doing it now! :) I have an ISO that ought to do the trick, I'll give
it a test when I get home from work tonight and see just how German the
internals really are.
Those interested in slightly customizing knoppix should check out this
URL for knoppix-customize:
More pointers can be found there on how to do the entire remastering
process as well.
