Re:Knoppix is Not Debian
Once you do the HD installation, you have their, allbeit mixed, distro based
on Debian and KDE. You then upgrade and play with it the way you would with
any purer Debian installation. What Knoppix gives you is decent hardware
detection and auto-setup. Debian will itself be doing this.
Knoppix is a quick jumpstart into Linux for Novices, yes. One can also
purchase Lindows or Xandro for similar results. After HD installation, this
mailing list becomes the best source of advice. Knoppsters on their mailing
list will tell you this as well.
