Though, bear in mind that the live discs won't always work on some
hardware that a normal install does work on, and the performance of a
live disc can be quite woeful compared to a normal installation.

I've experienced both of them, myself.  Using a live disc is really only
a test of using a live disc.  But it's a fair bet that if the live disc
does work, a normal installation will work even better.
