SFS-KNOPPIX is a kind of KNOPPIX which boots form Internet with a cloop on SFS (Self-certifying File System). SFS-KNOPPIX requires small boot loader (20MB image) and offers full KNOPPIX functions, Autoconfig, etc.
SFS-KNOPPIX makes possible to change a cloop file (root file system of KNOPPIX) at boot time. It means we don't need to burn extra CD for many KNOPPIX offshoots.
