Apparently it doesn't like the two machines I've tried this on.

My machine at home with a radeon 9600 boots, and mounts the CD. The first time I tried, they mouse was very stuttery, and the keyboard didn't work at all (at least, hitting 'a' gave me 'ggggggggggggg' in a terminal). The next time I tried, the mouse wouldn't even move.

So I brought it in to work... But it won't even get past the point where it's supposed to mount the CD (in a very typical IDE cdrom drive).

Oh well... Guess I'll have to wait till xgl becomes mainstream.
