Well, it works on Jaunty with nary a hiccup for me.  Are others  
having any issues?  Too bad there isn't a way to get a message out to  
the people who tried to install it over the last couple of years and  
found it didn't work?  No doubt many of them gave up following-up on  
it's status.  Also, there are a couple of antiquated pages about  
Sabayon on the internet.  It doesn't look like there is a page on the  
wiki introducing and explaining sabayon.  Seems like that would be a  
great thing to have on an Edubuntu Wiki?
