Debix can provide the infrastructure. Knoppix has to supply the debs
that should be in a Knoppix set for debix.
The 2 parts I ment was that Debix is suposed as tool to create a
live-cd from an existing or hand build system but also a tool that can
build such system automatically according to preset rules (list of
debs and some cleanup scripts if needed).
