I just got a set of debian beta1 cd's from Johnie Ingram, here are the
bootability-results so far (with what I've had to test them on):

#1 AOpen AP5TX P233MMX, Award BIOS v4.51PG, Toshiba 24x ATAPI CDROM
   - Does not boot. 
     (My Debian machine, damn. The only one I wanted it to boot on.)
#2 AOpen AP5VM P233MMX, AMI BIOS v2.60 - Boots fine. Creative 16x ATAPI CDROM
   - Boots fine.
#3 ASUS LX97 Pentium II 233, Award BIOS v4.51PG, Toshiba 32x ATAPI CDROM
   - Boots fine.

Just my $0.02.  Gonna try to fiddle with my machine and get it to boot off it.
