Nothing in my email even remotely hinted at the fact that installing it
via Knoppix is a bad idea.  One advantage of debian over redhat is it's
netinstall feature.  If somebody's switching to debian, why not take

as you pointed out)?  Also, you say "people who just want a cd to put in
the drive".  That's what this is for:
