There is a reason the woody is not released yet. I suspect the kernel is stable,
but the software that supports it has not caught up. In my case I got all the
way through the installation, apt was saying no pending broken packages, and
found that X had lost all it's fonts, among other things. X crashed before I
could get things straightened out. I can boot, but X will not come up. The
xf86config file is a mess. Fun, fun.
