I liked the sound of distros that booted from CD so I searched around and Knoppix sounded like the most popular one. But I saw there was also a version called Knoppix-STD which was a smaller download (I have a cable modem ). I'm pretty much a complete newb to Linux/Unix so I was wondering how different the two versions are from each other. Is STD geared toward more experienced users? Or is it the exact same thing, just with lots of security tools?

I'm new here (this is my 2nd post) and I look forward to learning lots of new stuff. AO seems to be a really great community so far . Later,
