I think you'd better install knoppix on hard disk, so that your changes to
the distribution remain across reboots. Then use the tools to install
packages. Something like:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential
should lead you close to a working environment. Run version-check.sh and look
for missing packages. Then "apt-get install" them.
