  Thanks. With Xorg.0.log I managed to troubleshot the problem - seems 
like the LiveCD can't run with 2 monitors plugged on an Nvidia card, 
even when one of the two isn't on. Since my Cintiq was disconnected, and 
the control box was unplugged, I discarded it, but as long as the 
DVI>DVI cable is connected, it manages to pick it up.

I've marked my bug report as a dupe 
(, install 
failure if 2 both monitors are active)
