2. Windows Vista  -- please remove remark about audio driver.
3. Add Debian 6.0, 32-bit -- Tested, works with additions.
4. Add RHEL 6.0, 32/64-bit -- Tested, works with additions.
5. RHEL 4.x - Add remark: Requires IDE controller. (Fails with SATA)

7. openSUSE 11.2/11.3 (32/64-bit) -- Tested, works with additions.
8. Debian 3.1 -- Works, without additions.

Please update.
NOTE: (not for webpage, but for you)
Debian 3.1 and Red Hat Linux 9 (RHL9) silently quits from Linux
Additions installer. Looks like some scripting silently fails on them.
RHEL 3.9, which is a close brother of RHL9, notably works.

2. kept F12, added F13/14,
 Testing F12/F13/F14. (32/64bit)

Mostly Xorg drivers/mouse integration, but also includes shared
folders, copy-paste, and simple 3D.
