Typically speaking the LiveCD lags several versions behind the latest<br><a href="http://kernel.org">kernel.org</a> kernel so it&#39;s not a 100% indicator whether things will<br>work.</blockquote><div><br>for example, opensuse&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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).
