If you have wanted to try a real Debian version without resorting to Knoppix, Libranet or Mepis but have problems with the woody installer there is hope. The new Debian Installer works pretty darn well in getting you an up and running Sarge install. For a beta there seemed to be very few problems. I would recommend it to any tinkerers.

This really is the simplest and least frustrating distro. It just seems to work the way Linux is supposed to work. Because there are not automatic gui management of your system, nothing gets broken unless you break it yourself. It is as stable as Debian woody (IME). But the software is reasonably up to date. The biggest mistake people make that have problems with Slackware is installing it and expecting not to have to learn how their system and Linux work. As stated before, there is no genie in the bottle that is going to do everything for you. But to me that is good. There isn't that overhead that your system has that will slow it a bit and also decrease stability.
