    knoppix does have a command that lets you install it to hd i think its
    Code:
    knx-hdinstall
    i think it sets up partitions during the install...not sure i havnt tried it

    ubuntu is also based off debian and theres only 1 cd to download. ubuntu also has easy quick install.

    Kanotix is based on Knoppix, with a very recent kernel (2.6.11) and is intended for install on hd's (uses the knoppix-installer). Great distro when you ask me, fits on one cd (which is a great plus), and it has the latest KDE (3.4) if you like that .

    Anyway, making a choice from all the available distro's is kinda hard, so good luck.

    Choosing a distro is a long process of trial and error. It all depends on your own personal needs and preferences as well as how you like things to be done.

    My frustration comes from the fact that distros are constantly changing, and so is my hardware, so it's hard to settle down. For example, my first experience with linux was mandrake, and it was a horrible experience (this was years ago...the distro was definitely more unstable back then). I dumped it for Red Hat, which I liked very much. Later, newer versions of Red Hat made me angry, so I ditched it for SuSE, which made me happy. Then discovered FreeBSD, which I really bonded with until hardware issues forced me back to linux. Eventually, I came to settle down with Fedora Core.

    So, in essence, I ended up back where I started. This is just an example of how choosing a distro is a crazy process (and arguably an ongoing one). No doubt I'm going to change out Fedora Core one of these days for something else.

    I haven't used SuSE in years, but I thought that it was good. Based on what I'm seeing at these forums, it's still good.

    I agree completely. I'm still choosing my fave distro.

    Does anyone know if Ubuntu has more graphical configuration tools you can get? I haven't got my box on the net ( ) so i can't check...

    easy and live distros

    Hi All - I have been trying a *lot* of distros including live and dead(?).

    If you don't mind spending a little money - getting distros from some of the CD burning places can be *really* cheap.

    The one i have used lately is http://www.budgetlinuxcds.com
    but of course there are lots. I pay 2.15 per CD plus very reasonable shipping and get lots of free distros...example in march i bout 15 CDs and 1 DVD containing all of the distros that have been mentioned here for $49.15 USD including shipping. Then i got 15 CDs and 1 DVD free a month later. If you want to see whats out there quickly and cheaply try one of these outfits. another is cheapbytes.com.

    Have fun
