Linspire Kevin Carmony of Linspire/Freespire has announced that the first beta of Freespire has been released earlier than anticipated. Get it from the download page. According to Carmony, this release includes out-of-the-box support for proprietary formats such as .mp3 and WMV, plug-and-play support for Ati and nVIDIA cards without user intervention, Click-N-Run, and much more.

I think you missed the part about "install minimal" though.

The freespire repository is up and running but it appears fairly limited and some stuff is broken and you can not mix it with a debian repo.

I wonder what would happen if you installed a base of debian, then used the freespire repos?

This will not work well with this Beta. It will work much better on subsequent releases.
