in Debian: woody is the stable version at the moment,
sarge is the testing version, will probably become the stable in a few months
sid is the unstable, where software arrives first, before it enters testing in Debian.
Sid will always stay the unstable. The name sid refers to the Toy Story boy who destroyed toys. All Debian names are from Toy Story

..please keep all your posts for this topic under one thread ...multiple thread creation for the same topic only a waste of bandwidth, time and efficiency.
If you go to debian.org, and READ, you will find that there are 3 versions of Debian:
all 3 versions with different packagages etc
If you go to knoppix.net and READ, you will find that:
knoppix is based on Stable, Testing, and Unstable, plus Experimental
knoppix is a mixture of all of the above, used primarily as a live cd, rescue disk, it's supposed to
be used as is. in order to give new users an idea of what linux is all about.
Please do some reading on the subject, visit knoppix newsgroups and also the knoppix channel (#knoppix) on the IRC for more information.
