I used:-

Distro: Knoppix 3.3, build Feb-24-2004 (based on Debian)
Kernel: 2.4.x
GUI: KDE 3.1.5
Package Management: DEB

This is my first post using Linux! I'm completely Linux n00b.

Today I installed Knoppix in my HDD using knx-hdinstall script. Installation was painless, took only ~5/6 minutes to install 2.5 GB stuff.

I use a winmodem, so modem wasn't automatically detected and installed. I had to use Linuxant modem driver for connexant based HSF modems. Except this, all hardwares (my nForce2 LAN is disabled and I use SB Live!) were automatically detected and installed.

My modem driver was in DEB package format. Installation was a piece of cake. I clicked on the DEB package, Kpackage appeared, I clicked install, and after few questions- installation was complete! Are RPM packages as easy to use?

I like KDE. Last time I used both KDE and Gnome with Redhat 7.0 and I didn't like Gnome.

Why people don't use Knoppix instead of Redhat/Fedora Core/Mandrake/SuSE? I've heard Debian is a very good distro. Knoppix can be easily installed in HDD, it has excellent preinstalled software and DEB package installation is very easy.
