I want to underline this. I have serious problems on two different computers.

* the intel xorg driver just produces garbage 
  (tested UXA and EXA; vesa works fine)
* forcedeth stops working after a few minutes
* ipw2200 does not work (it does not find any networks)
* on every boot it complains about broken superblock features and wants to run
  a fs check (ext4; different hds; totally random) -> make backups ;-)
* s626 has to be blacklisted; otherwise udev will take a long time and a
  modporbe process keeps hanging and cannot be killed
* there might be a problem with the nvidia graphics driver

So you better shouldn't use it unless you don't need network access or you 
have backups of all your data. :-)
