Not enough information provided.
Is knoppix installed on the server or the laptop?
How is the network configured and explain details on hardware. Do you have a wireless router etc.?
What do you mean by hook it up to the main computer?

Lets start over. Please provide some detailed information.
You have Knoppix on the server, what operatiing system is installed on the laptop?

I am not sure exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Is the laptop connected to the internet and you want to connect the server via the laptop?

You will need a ethernet crossover cable connected between the computers if you do not want to use a hub or a switch.
Hopefully the ethernet is automatically detected but until I know the details of the laptop I do not want to aimlessly include information that would be
unrelated to your needs.
