I understood from this that you wanted to create a new distro based on debian.
Besides knoppix can be installed to hd which is why I recommended remastering. You take knoppix, remove and add apps, make a new iso, and then you can boot and install it. Granted it's not fully debian compatible but like I said, it's easy.
