All Rights reserved is more restrictive then the GFDL and therefore
not allowed to relisence with if I am informed correctly. Unless Knol
allowed GFDL as license option, or CC-BY-SA-3.0 *and* GFDL/CC-BY-SA
get compatible (not yet the case) you will not be allowed to upload
Wikipedia content to Knol unless you are the sole author (such as I
did with Ter Heijde I think)

Best regards,
