Kanotix is a Knoppix-like distro that is designed to be completely Debian-based, so that migration to pure Debian is a no-brainer.I've discovered one of the remaining few areas where Debian can be a real pain is in hardware detection. I've tested on a number of machines and even debian-installer can't match libranet/ubuntu/knoppix. Any tips on using one of these distros to install plain debian? Or even better, an apt-get metapackage which installs required packages for ACCURATE hardware detection? Knoppix and libranet last I tried leave little traces of custom packages so full migration to debian is buggy.
