Despite the encouragement from Mike and Ivan it needs to be said that
there is a fair sized thread on uk.comp.os.linux about people having
trouble with the installer.

I suspect they have slightly unusual hardware, but that shouldn't
really cause trouble (says he who has never managed to get a RH
install to all-SCSI to work properly). 

I'll be playing with it myself on the test machine when I finish a
download. Can't see me ever going to it as a main install though.
