Ran it yesterday. Didn't identify my Gigabyte Radeon 9600Pro, but I expected that. It booted X in vesa. But apart from that, it worked like a charm.
Internet was automatically configured so surfing the net involved starting firefox... no configuration needed.
Try it. You won't be disappointed.
ATI's drivers are not open source I believe, or something like that. It takes some extra work configurng the kernel with thier modules to get direct rendering, so dont be surprised if a live CD doesnt have full support for your hardware.
Hardware is a trickey thing with linux, only now are manufactures starting to make drivers for linux. So sad that they are getting exclusive contracts with M$ a lot of times.
