Its not about Debian Linux  being better then Redhat
both come with the same utilities
but the red hat 2 cd set is definately
nothing compared to debian 4 cd set of course you can
find rpm's for all the stuff that debian comes bundeled
but you have to search lookout check dependencies 
and waste time to do that but with debian no need for such things
you have a list of packages and if you want u can update
that list. as the latest package list on the server and upgrade
your distb frm the ftp servers itself.
