I'm glad to hear that. I'll check it out soon.

Agreed. I think Knoppix is more of a taste than the real thing. But I
think that there are some good features that Knoppix has that could be
added to Debian (like autodetection). But the way things are it's
pretty difficult for a newbie to go from Knoppix to Debian. I'm just
glad that is being worked on.
