    Oh, but Knoppix is just the road to installing a Debian system
    to one's hard disk eventually.

This may be true in some cases, but "installing a Debian system" is
not a well-defined destination.  Debian distributes non-free packages
as well as free ones.  Using Knoppix as it stands may be a road to
installing Debian with non-free packages and leaving it that way.
