Just let me describe my experience with Progeny so far:

I've got an old PC in the office which cannot boot from CDROM. Fortunately 
there is an Adaptec SCSI controller inside, which can redefine the SCSI 
CDROM somehow to look like a floppy drive. I could boot the Progeny CD on 
this machine, but during the installation procedure it failed to access the 
CD. I was stuck. RedHat 7.1 had the same problem.

The Debian boot CD (2.2r2) worked as expected. Excelent work, folks.
