Re: F9 preview: live cd issues

Since I wasn't able to get F9 Preview or Beta installed, I d/l F9 Preview Live CD and booted it. It almost did not boot. I was getting all kinds of weird block device errors and a lot of trouble reading the cd with errors on /dev/sr0 like (and I verified the media - it was good):

Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0462
end_request, I/O error, dev sr0, sector 33840

      Welcome to Fedora

Once it finally did boot I went in and sent a smolt profile of my machine. It is here: http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_a85342c8-29ef-4208-a216-161ee87bcb2f

With all the weird errors I've seen I think that F9 is having some difficulty with the SATA/IDE controllers/drives.
This machine has three SATA controllers:
Gigabyte 2 int 2 ext
AMD660 4 int
HighPoint 2300 4 int
I see such errors on every Fedora LiveCD I've ever built (even on my non-standard embedded boards). They are only related to the CD device itself and don't seem to
hurt anything (except one's sensibilities)
