Well, after a couple of months using Knoppix, I thought, WTF let's give Morphix a try. Just like Knoppix, it's a live CD. Boots fast, right into Gnome 2.2. Knoppix is KDE centric, while Morphix is more Gnome centric. Both detect hardware well, video is good... but..... Well with Knoppix it's a little easier to setup. I could d/l and install NVidia's latest drivers while with Morphix I couldn't even get it to compile a custom module
Oh well, live and learn.. back to Knoppix I guess..
