Probablly so, but I remember a certain someone asking me if I had a copy.

I havent installed it yet, but I did use the Live version. I thought it was pretty cool, but only because I think all Live versions are pretty cool.

open a terminal and type in the following...

Code:
su
****** #roots password
modprobe snd-ice1712;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
test your sound.. if sound works afterwards let me know.. and I will tell you how to fix it so it works everytime you reboot.

I have a few questions about it. First, how do you change ur mouse speed. It is to slow for me. All i can find is where you can change the pointer white or black. Also, it says that it will show a little icon in the system tray when you get new mail, how do you turn that on? it seems pretty cool but I think my computer may be alittle slow to run it
