Hi Jon,

The advantage to Knoppmyth is that it's a one-stop shop with a minimum 
of extra "stuff".  My current system (thank you, fried videocard and 
motherboard!) is based on Fedora Core, which took a bit more fiddling 
than Knoppmyth did, but I've been really happy with it so far.  I would 
have stuck with KnoppMyth, but I couldn't get the CD to boot with the 
new system (which, ironically, was actually an older system).

My $0.02 is that Knoppmyth is a great solution, and that Fedora Core 
works well too.  As for the others, I can't say.
