I just upgraded to beta5 on my laptop..... very nice work guys
My touchpad worked right after installing the synaptics package from slacky.eu (this required a lot of work in previous releases)
upgraded kernel to 126.96.36.199 to get broadcom wireless to work with native drivers (no GUI for wifi-networking though (vwifi doesn't work for me... iwconfig fails to talk to my router... I handly my wifi-connecting with wpa_supplicant))
** Not hard at all **
Right after the install, I added HAL (personal option) and upgraded the LXDE and PCMANFM packages to their latest versions (Sweet WM)
Bootsplash now works on my intel 950GMA chip.
Still no intel drivers included, so I had to install xf86-intel to get the 1280x800 resolution.
After that, this box is as good as it's ever been ... only much faster
