Known limitations in this release:

* SATA disc support may be patchy, depending on interface chipset

* pcmcia-cs package is not included (available from a Debian mirror)

* No proprietary media codecs included in the base install

Please note that this release is provided for testing only, and comes
with no warranty. There are probably plenty of bugs, which is why we're
calling this release 'alpha'. But the software does actually install and
run on our Opteron, Athlon 64 and Turion test hardware, and is quite
usable already.

for improvement, please see the http://64studio.com/wiki/TracTickets
