Nope. I've not yet been able to install Feisty from the Live CD. I've
only been able to install from the Alternate CD - 4 systems so far & all
hardware is working just fine. All are old systems (650Mhz & slower
w/256MB) but with perfectly working hardware.

I typically install only from the Alternate CD anyway so this hasn't
been a problem (with me).
