Hi Homer - good to see you on the list.

I recommend this install image:


(~90 meg download) 

(Kudos to Len Sorensen for a great iso)

I used it myself on my dual-Opteron last week.

It's Sarge, but with the 2.6.12 kernel.  If you install in expert mode
then it will give you the option for testing.

The only issue I've seen with it so far was on a scsi system - it did
not recognize the scsi controller, so we had to install with the
regular Sarge.  Unfortunately I have a memory like a sieve, and cannot
remember what controller it was - I'll check when I get back tomorrow.
