I spent a day tying to get the live CD for aptosid to work and it kept hanging 30 seconds into the startup. After searching the forum I discovered that the Live CD has a bug with Radeon Graphics cards.
http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... ht=live+cd

The temporary fix is simply to add the cheatcode "radeon.modeset=0" The problem has apparently been fixed in more recent kernels.

My point:
This should be fixed in the Live iso's or at least noted as a bug on the news page? There must be dozens of potential new users, with radeon cards, who have given up on aptosid because of this "undocumented feature".

Even if there could be a warning placed on the News Announcement for the Live CD, then the newb's won't be discouraged by what looks to them like a distro that simply doesn't work.

i think the "new" user wont aim for Debian, and maybe not a unstable one.
But i know what you mean.
