Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

Squeeze AMD64 DVD 1 downloaded. burned and installed without a single problem for me. Wired network, no wireless, desktop. Used graphical install onto LVM2 volume. Flash 64 works in IceFox. Me-TV functioning after firmware loaded. LXDE fine. All very stable. So is aptosid on same machine after switching from sidux by "upgrade". This desktop has a laptop MSI mobo with embedded ATI radeon Xpress 1150. Screen resolution was set in xorg.conf to suit my 1280x1024 display. Networked to XP, Vista and 7 as well as other linux. Did not find installer long winded. What were you doing? Fine distro replacing Lenny and Etch. Normally use Fedora.
