Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Knoppix supports nearly the
number of architectures that Debian does.
It doesn't. But
a) RHL supports IA32, IA64, AMD-64, IBM iSeries, pSeries and zSeries,and
YDL is basically RHL ported to Powemacs.
b) The other (unsupported) platforms don't have anything like the array
of third-party hardware found on PC-type platforms.
c) It also used to support Alphas and Sparcs. I'm running RHL 6.2 on a
lunchbox. Well, I installed it:-)
The hardware detection in RHL is done by Kudzu
It's not debian-complete by any means, but those architectures not
covered by Kudzu must surely be easier than those already done.
