Install Debian and then install Enlightenment as the GUI (by doing apt-get install enlightenment, I would imagine) - job done!

And welcome to LQ

I guess you could try installing Debian, upgrade to unstable, and then try to use this guy's repositories for E17.

Edit: XavierP's advice is good if you don't mind using E16...

If you have broadband, download this one. It has just the basic packages and will get everything else from the web.
