Debian 2.2 R6
Turbo Linux 7.0
SuSE Live-eval 8.0
The SuSE distro runs from CD, creating a couple of files to use as a home directory and to save settings. It worked flawlessly and is a pretty impressive release. It is intended to be used for evaluation purposes only, the ready to install to disk version 8.0 is available for purchase.
None of the other distros installed properly, they all were missing one file or another, and in general created hours of work to recover the machine back to a useful state. I am about to try one of the distro's again now (masochist I guess ...), have any of you had downloaded ISO distros actually install properly? any I've purchased have worked fine, hmmm.... wonder what that means?

I have entirely too much time on my hands ;)
Thanks little, I just started to wonder if anyone had success with ISO's, maybe NFFC can take a break from making up (funny I might add) stories about the "gizmo" to confirm -hehehe
