Having just switched to Debian 2.1 from RH 5.2, I think the Debian
install is easier and more informative.

Its just a case of getting used to it. I prefer dselect to RH's glint.
In fact after using Debian for about a week now I'm not changing back to
RH (or SUSE for that matter).
I also see that some here have trouble with Cheapbyte CD's. I must be
lucky with mine as the install went perfectly, first time.
My only slight grumble is that Debian does not have a detailed LILO
setup during the install. Then again, its fun reading the docs and
figuring it out yourself.
