Booting Knoppix with the 2.6 kernel will allow you to be certain that
a working driver for your card is available. That is one of the
really nice things about Knoppix, it's a good "test drive" even if
you don't end up using it as an install. Just see what it detects and
loads, and you have a list of drivers to install for yourself.
Knoppix does have a "hd install" function, but it installs a
combination of Debian Unstable and Knoppix specific packages. The
system will work well, but it's near impossible to synchronize with
the standard Debian repositories once installed.
ZenLinux.org also has an install function, and touts itself as a pure
Debian Unstable live CD, so synchronizing with the repositories
should be no problems. But I've never tried it.
