Actually, a thing I have recently discovered is Morphix. It's based on
Knoppix (so it still has all the magic hardware detection and stuff)
but is more modular, has a "light gui" version that doesn't require
forty gigs of RAM or whatever KDE needs (and is only a 190MB download),
and, most importantly, has an "Install this" button on the desktop to
install to the drive! And, like Knoppix, it's Debian-based, so thsi
could be the New Easy Way to install Debian; just run Morphix to detect
all your hardware, install Morphix, then apt-get update; apt-get
upgrade to make it Debian. Wow.

I shall install on my laptop and report back...
