upgrading knoppix on a thumb drive...?
 
Here's my situation. I got Knoppix 5.1.1 installed on a 4 gb usb drive. I would like to:

*Have a good source list (the one that default is old)
*Update all the software on the drive

Are these possible? I'm a complete n00b so please point me in the right direction.

TIA.

I would think a simple "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" would do the trick. If you want to, you can add sources manually also.

"sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list" unless you choose a different text editor. I personally prefer nano.
