So, you have plain CVS with cloop applied and you have copied the files
from the CD to C:\temp, right?

To use the cloop support of QEmu, you have to patch the initrd, otherwise
Knoppix will use its own cloop decompressor (see start_knoppix.sh, which I
just verified runs also with dsl- just fine).

But looking at your mail again (I can only guess), you did not specify
-hda, and neither -cdrom. In order to run properly, Knoppix needs to think
it runs from CD, so you have to specify "-cdrom dsl-" (or
-cdrom d:\? I don't know if that works already...), but in order to use
the cloop patch, you *also* have to add "-hda c:\temp\knoppix\knoppix".
Note that -hda is given a file, not a directory.
