grub is default, meaning it is preferred.

ok. If you are going to give another try to debian, try the KDE version.

I don't think there is a separate installer for netbooks.

This is the KDE version of amd64 cd 1
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/6.0.4/amd64/iso-cd/debian-6.0.4-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso

I suspect it is because Ubuntu is newer and that's why it has better
hardware detection. If you are brave you can try debian testing or
Linux Mint Debian Edition (which has one more layer of testing on top
of debian testing).
