Debian and its clones Debian is not quite like any other distro out there. If bigger is better, then Debian wins hands down. Aside from having the largest collection of free software packages, Debian also runs on 11 platforms. But there is more to Debian than just size. Travel writer and recent Debian convert Robert Storey tackles the whole installation procedure head on and gives his report.

Knoppix as an installer
by theARE on Wed 3rd Sep 2003 14:17 UTC

I Installed my debian system using knoppix's knx-hdinstall script copies everything to your hard disk and only asks a few simple questions along the way. You do have to do some post install configuration, but all the hardware, X, software etc is set up for you. Best, least hassle free way of installing debian.
