i got the 64bit version and that just hangs after the first screen and i chose the first option. i guess 64bit linux isnt for my system. ive tried fedora also.
not compatible out the box with an abit ip35 pro using a sata dvd:
CentOs 5 64bit
Fedora 7 64 bit
Ubuntu 7.04 64bit and 32bit(doesn't have nvidia driver. no gui for that reason)

nice list.
