Default Re: free linux cd

Hey I am downloading Knoppix so after I do, I will burn it to a cd. I want to install it and use it, but I also wanna still have my windows os.

So will it go in the blue screen and I pick a new partion and do not delete the partion that is already there?

knoppix is a live cd distro. I'm not sure if you can actually install it or not, however i'm not the most familiar with linux.
