Dear Satoshi,

Your Knoppix-based CD-ROM is a great way to promote PostgreSQL. My Debian 
workstation was installed using Knoppix. It worked like a charm without any 
problem until now.

My point of view is that Knoppix text-based installation scripts are not 
enough user-friendly for most MS Windows users.

This opinion comes from a self-study that I conducted visiting my neighbours 
in order to demonstrate and install Debian. My neighbours are mostly casual 
MS Windows users with no special background in computing.

Some accepted to replace MS Windows with Debian, others did not. But all of 
them had problems with Knoppix text-based installation scripts.

Therefore, my personal opinion is that Knoppix with good graphical 
installation wizards would 'rock'. This is how I turned to Morphix ... which 
is mostly based on Knoppix. The problem is that Morphix wizards are still 
very unstable.

Now, if you allow it, I will contact you privately to propose for help the 
best I can ...

Best regards,
Jean-Michel
