OK, so far the only problem I have had with the hardware side of the  
installation is with my video card. For some reason it does not like  
my nVidia 8500GT with 512 MB of RAM. None of the nVidia drivers  
worked and neither did the plain nv driver. I am running it in vesa  
mode. I might add that the card works perfectly with previous versions.

I do have a second NIC card in the system which is not detected at  
all. It is an old Realtek 8139/D that I was trying to use in SkyOS.  
It doesn't work there either.   :-)

Other than that everything else I have tried works.
