I never got Deb to install so I gave up on it. After a lot of effort I
did get Gentoo up (sort of) but the effort was tremendous. EasyLinux is
no longer supported but it was very easy.
Slackware is pretty much paint by numbers to install. But you do have to
fiddle to get X-windows up. I generally just copy over my old
XF86Config when a new release comes out.
Knoppix just slides right in. When I get a good no-fiddle hard disk
install script I will recommend the combo to everyone. Why can't Deb be
Able Indexers and Typesetters
