I disagree -- the 'setup' of a machine is actually the same (more or less)
on each distribution. You are referring to the GUI differences which in
themselves are built *on-top* of text configuration files. It is *this*
which is common throughout. What changes is merely the location of these.
As far as ease is concerned, that is a relative process, since some may
find one thing more easier than others.
SuSE use YaST (which among other phrases stands for: 'Yet Another Setup
Tool'). This is both grahical and text-based.

Why Knoppix to install Debian? If you're trying to play the command-line
installers v GUI-installer game. Forget it.
