I've tried Jaunty on six different machines now and only one loads 
beyond the point you mention - the laptop I'm testing it on. The 
machines include a recent Dell desktop, a year old Dell desktop and and 
AMD64 3000, so quite a variety. I haven't seen a no-load since Badger.

Also, I'm having sever difficulties with video and audio with the 
machine that does run. I'm reporting bugs, but not a lot of response.
