If you have broadband, and plenty of bandwidth, it may be worth a shot to download some other live distributions to see if they fare better with that particular peice of hardware. If you are able to find a distribution that does then perhaps we can fix VL so that it will also, as well as making a permanent fix for future releases. My recommendation would be to try Damn Small Linux, PCLinuxOS, and Knoppix. If you don't have decent bandwidth then Damn Small Linux and Puppy are relatively small. I'm hoping that you'll be able to find a distro that supports this device so that we can learn from them how to make VL support this device.
