    I never tried knoppix but in some distributions, there is nother file "menu.lst" (or something like that) in stead of grub.conf in the same directory!

    Try that...

    Knoppix is just a live cd, you can boot from it. Once you reboot or turn your computer off its gone. It doesn't install anything on your computer.
    How did you install it on your computer? Can you tell us that.

    Login as root in a terminal by typing sudo -s and give the command knoppix-installer or knx-install ...In the recent versions its the former one....
