If your looking for debian with easy install.. go with storm2000
(NOTE: make sure the version you get comes with 2.2.16 kernel.. storm has
a version based on slink (old debain) and potato (current version) under
the same name.. my system didn't support storm's graphical install.. but
the textinstall was MUCH better then most of the other's I've tried...
AVOID corel.. corel is VERY desktop based
