Typically speaking the LiveCD lags several versions behind the latest<br><a href="http://kernel.org">kernel.org</a> kernel so it's not a 100% indicator whether things will<br>work.</blockquote><div><br>for example, opensuse's one was always current with the distro. the distro was out less than 14 days ago and included a lot of new packages. that one i pretty good in terms of drivers (has the
2.6.22r8 if i don't miss). <br>your affirmation is good to point out that if livecd works out then surely the installed distro would surelly go well.<br>i was forgetting: for all the new processors it's possibile to run paravirtualized windows on linux with xen. so you can run windows and linux at the same time if you need to. also i would recommend installing linux on a lvm2 (on the gentoo docs should be some instructions on how to do it).
