Morphix doesn't detect the keyboard or mouse on my works Compaq laptop.
Had acquired Knoppix in the hope that it would do better, but confess
I've been too busy to try it yet.  But your post doesn't sound too
hopeful Aq.

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...
