I can't be certain, but I'm guessing a standard Knoppix setup is a little
beyond the hardware she's dealing with.  (She's mainly a DOS user, I think.
Really, even plain text-mode Linux will be a joyous upgrade from that.)

I think a more plain Debian install might be safer, but I've never done
a Knoppix install.  I could just be making too many assumptions about the
hardware requirements for Knoppix (which I guess really comes from the
'all special effects turned on' KDE GUI they default to :^) ... purty, but
a little heavy on your CPU!)
