Special Information

Quantian OS is a remastering of Knoppix/Debian for computational sciences.

The environment is self-configuring and directly bootable CD/DVD that turns any PC or laptop into a Linux workstation.

Quantian also incorporates clusterKnoppix and adds support for openMosix, including remote booting of light clients in an openMosix terminal server context permitting rapid setup of a SMP cluster computer.

Linux Installation Instructions

Download quantian0792-XXX.tar.gz to /


extract quantian0792-XXX.tar.gz file:

tar -xvzf quantian0792-XXX.tar.gz

Download Quantian ISO Latest Version to /mnt/ :


Mount ISO file to temporary location (/mnt/cdrom/)

mkdir /mnt/cdrom/
mount -o loop /mnt/Quantian_0.7.9.2.iso /mnt/cdrom/

Copy linux26 , KNOPPIX to appropriate directory: (LOWER CASE ONLY! , Do not Replace miniroot.gz!!)

cp /mnt/cdrom/boot/isolinux/linux26 /tftpboot/er/plugins/quantian/linux26
cp /mnt/cdrom/KNOPPIX/* /tftpboot/er/shares/quantian/KNOPPIX/

We have created our own miniroot.gz file that loads NIC drivers and added it to the ERPXE plugin package.

To create it yourself just boot the Quantian CD and start the KNOPPIX Terminal Server, Check your components and it will be created in /tftpboot/.

Verify files with filelist.txt in each folder.

All Done!
