Hi All,

We still need testing of the AMD64 live cd, and the i386 live cd.
Unfortunately, so far I am the only test reporter.  Please consider helping
test this release.  A test report would need to be issued within the next
few hours.

I've included information below on how to test the release, and then report
your results.  Really, this is an easy way to contribute to the distro, and
it does matter.  Thanks for your efforts.
