It has documentation that is easy to follow on how to get your internet configured. It's a Live CD just like Knoppix but, In my opinion, has better detection.
Then, if you like it, head over to mepis.org and tell em TKS sent you :P
Seriously...I've tried both knoppix and MEPIS and I now run MEPIS on my hard drive...it was that good. And I'm an old slackware user from waaaaay back. For whatever my opinion is worth to ya.
