Is it good for a workstation?


Yes, if you run the unstable branch (sid) of Debian or stable (woody) with backports

I would suggest that you download the Debian based Libranet 2.7 Classic Edition, because of the easier installer. Libranet is fully compatible with Debian. You can even upgrade to Debian unstable from Libranet Classic.

Add the following sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code:
# Debian SIDdeb http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-freedeb http://http.at.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free


Then run apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Gnoppix, Knoppix, Morphix: Which one will give me the closest to a true Debian system when installed to HD? (I have never had any success with installing Debian, and I would love to try it.) 8)

Since all use the Debian repositories, I would think any of them. I've worked with all three, and prefer them in this order:

Morphix

Knoppix

Gnoppix

 

This is a great way to get Debian on your box, if like me, you tried 5 times to install it without success..

Will this work the same if I use the Libranet install? ;(

At least that many tries so far, and as many sets of Debian coasters! I have Morphix and Knoppix on CD and functional. I've been considering Gnoppix, and Philipp suggested Libranet Classic. I'm currently trying to download that one, but there seems to be a server problem: it starts out really well, with speed in excess of 400 KB/sec, then nearly halfway, it stops, saying it can't read from the source. Oh, well. I guess I'll go with what I have. Does Morphix have apt? 8)

I have an old Pentuim 75, 6Gb, 64Mb, (not really workstation material, but that's not what I'm commenting on,) that I wanted to play around with.

 

Being a fairly impatient sort I simply bunged a Knoppix CD in and installed the system to disk. Yesterday I did an apt-get with Synaptic that checked over 1000 packages - that's verging on system bloat!

 

Point being that just about everything I needed to work with is there on that machine even though there are some tasks that would be murder to try and perform. Oh and in my fairly limited experience it's proved real smooth and stable (as expected.)
