For some general Debian advocacy, there's my Debian page at http://lyre.mit.edu/~powell/debian.html .

I think the important thing here is that once you get Debian working, you get ~8000 high-quality packages which have been thoroughly tested and debugged both individually and as a coherent distribution. The only downside I can think of is the overhead of the package management system (mainly /var/lib/dpkg), which can be a burden for small systems like handhelds; in that case you probably want Familiar, which is very similar to Debian.

I'm afraid I can't address your specific questions, they seem to be largely kernel and installation issues; perhaps someone else...
