when I tried with Knoppix, the X system worked well, but with debian I had

The docs are on the release CD and will be installed if you tell the
install program to do so.

What you could do is use an emulator (like VMware or the free Qemu) to
do a test install on a virtual machine. Furthermore there is the
Freesbie project which is a FreeBSD Live-CD that you can boot from to
