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:

Take care,
