I installed my SN95G5 with very few problems. (During the CD part of the
install the network card did not work, once I was running from the disk it
was fine.) I'm writing this message on it right now (albeit from the x86
port - I sometimes run amd64 on it as well.) I had to jump through some
minor hoops to get xfs working, too.
Look at this message for the version of the installer I used:
