Knoppix provides a network boot server, and while this is good in a pinch (and 
cool to play with), it won't tell you whether it will work with K12LTSP or not 
because they don't provide the same set of X servers, NIC drivers, etc.  Best 
thing to do would be to get a laptop.  Doesn't have to be fancy: I once 
scavenged a bunch of laptops from the trash heap, managing to take only the 
non-broken ones by finding one in good shape, installing K12LTSP on it, and 
using it to boot/test all the others.  I think they were all mostly 700mhz 
models, since I just wanted to see if they would boot & run.
