The live CD hangs with this (approximate, I had to write it down) error:

end request:  I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logged block 0
requesting unionfs 1.4
loop:  module loaded
squashfs:  version 3.2-UBUNTU (2007/07/21) Phillip Logher

This is after pressing F6 for options and removing quiet and splash, then 

no apci acpi=off

before the "--" as options for the kernel (?).

>From another distro, I know that the hardware works fine and is 
recognized.  Is this a matter of recognizing hardware?
