It would be nice to see some of Apple's new intel hardware covered on
an installation LiveCD.  The one thing I'm referring to is the
following.  I'll just C/P from
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Apple_MacBook to show you what I'm
talking about.  It's on the newer MacBooks, the ones manufactured
after Nov 2007.  There is a networking problem that causes one to have
to install via a Ubuntu livecd, which is definately not a preferred
installation method.  It is as follows:

Only on NEW Macbooks manufactured after Nov 2007
The newer Models include a Marvell Network Controller that seems to be
not supported by the Kernel. (See lspci section for more info) Goto
[1], download the driver and follow the README to get it working.
Note: Support for the network card has been added in the 2.6.23-R3
Kernel. Just build 'SysKonnect Yukon2' into the kernel and all is
well.

It is not possible to install to a MacBook with the Minimal CD, which
would be preferred.  Thanks.
