You should install whatever distribution works best for you.

When the Debian installer switches from the current 2.6.17 kernel to the 
upcoming 2.6.18 kernel it will gain default support for libata ATAPI 
support. Until that time the workaround described in [1] should work.

Other than that, I don't know what the hell you're talking about.


P.S. Your use of the term "more functional installer" is pretty offensive.
Differences in installation systems are mostly the result of differences 
between the goals and principles of the project and have nothing to do 
with the installer per se.
