KNOWIMS is a bootable drive with a modified KNOPPIX GNU/Linux system plus WIMS. Insert it into your PC and make a reboot.
A few minutes later, you get a running WIMS server, the same as on wims.unice.fr. It runs entirely on the CD, without touching the existing system on the PC, wether it is Linux or Windows. When you remove the drive and reboot the PC, you get it back to exactly what it was.
You can also use various available media (hard disk, usb memory stick, memory cards) to store your data, so that they will not be lost when you shut down the PC.
