OK I gave out demo linux to 3 coworkers, one was 2.0 and two where 3.0. 
 I have tested it on my work laptop and it detected everything (except 
pcmcia nic) including external usb mouse.  One coworker has a Gateway 
Pentium 3 box that it worked perfectly on and the second coworker had an 
HP system with everything except usb mouse working.  I have also tried 
it on a Dell (just like the ones at the last DCN class) GX1 and it work 
great.  Also tried it on a Dell GX100 works great as well.  I can test 
it on more machines at home as well.  I have a Dell Dimension XPS T500 
that I can test it on as well.

I will let you know later tonight.
