I've been running with video=ofonly in my yaboot.conf for the woody
installer (booting from a HFS partition on the hard disk).  Specifying
it explicitly for the potato CDs I have didn't seem entirely succesful -
instead of hanging with no output the machine was powered down very
rapidly after system startup.

Removing the USB speakers didn't seem to have much effect on anything.
