BootCD is for installing it.
LiveCD is for running from CD, like Knoppic does.

Debug is for Developers and outputs important Information over the COM Port, but its more stable than the Release one which does not.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I was told in IRC that debug versions were less stable than release versions...

They are neither more nor less stable. By chance, some can appear to be "better".

Debug versions are tested much more often than release, so on that premise you could say debug are more reliable

Just use the debug version. That way if you have a issues you can turn debugging on and try to get some info back to the devs
