could you tell us why you choose Kanotix instead of Knoppix to create your custom liveCD/installCD? i once tried with Knoppix and found that it was relatively easy if one follows: http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Knoppix_Remastering_Howto but unfortunately did not find much time to go on. i also tried Morphix but paradoxically found it slightly more difficult.

My suggestion would be to use Ubuntu to get a basic installation, and add the DeMuDi packages on top of that. Ubuntu should streamline the hardware detection & configuration process quite nicely. The DeMuDi packages could be part of Debian (Unstable/Testing?) already, so it's just a matter of updating the sources you download from.
Demudi is using some Ubuntu packages. But I'm not sure Demudi is still maintained, and many of its packages are now available in Debian (and/or Ubuntu). As a rule of thumb, it's better not to mix Ubuntu and Debian packages; Ubuntu doesn't care about compatibility with Debian, because Ubuntu have a different agenda than Debian (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MarkShuttleworth). So when there's a good package from Ubuntu, it's better to recompile it for Debian (and vice-versa).
Dynebolic is OK as a live CD, but pretty much impossible to reconfigure, so I'd skip it for a permanent installation unless you need something working RIGHT NOW ;-)
I created my own livecd using Kanotix (which is a derivative of Knoppix) and packages from Debian unstable. I can't distribute it "as is" because it contains lots of non-free packages for multimedia support. But I like it better than Dynebolic because it can be installed on a hard drive and used as a good starting point for a complete system. Dynebolic is a carefully crafted livecd with everything compiled from scratch, so basically it's a work of art and it can't be easily extended like Debian.
