or maybe official Live CD prepared with debix ? What do you think about such
images prepared with debix and containing the official debian-installer

since knoppix 3.3 there is one more hdd installer along with knx-hdinstall, it
is called knoppix-installer and has mode=knoppix and mode=debian. I have
never tested it, but I guess it installs more policy compliant Debian system
