    Information seems to be a little scant around here.
    I tried this CD (20060326) on a MAC Mini. I discovered that I need to type "mini" at the boot prompt to get the boot progress visible on my monitor.
    The next thing I discovered is that the video buffer seems to be confused. There appear to be about 11 lines not visible at the bottom of my display. If I type a command, I have to scroll the display (for example by pressing ENTER a few times) to see the result of the command.
    This being not too useful, I have given up at this point. I'll wait for the next version.
    But if there's an experiment you need me to do, let me know (richaw at gmail dot com)

      I also tried the same version with my Mac Mini 1.66 Core Duo and a Viewsonic PF790 monitor. I couldn't see the screen until I booted with the mini option. With that the computer seems to lockup and doesn't boot all the way. I tried 4 times and then finally gave up. I keeps locking up at different stages.
