installation of Kanotix
In live mode the new Kanotix Hellfire enables users to mount partitions. You don't need to start Dolphin as root anymore. After a root password prompt the same applies to partitions within a Kanotix installation, that should not be mounted via fstab.
The Kanotix Team thanks all those who have participated in the tests for Kanotix Hellfire. Special thanks to the developers Jörg Schirottke (Kano), Andreas Loibl (Acritox) and Maximilian Gerhard (TheOne). Furthermore the Kanotix project thanks the hosting sponsor Hetzner and the Debian Project.
