Yes, my CD images I downloaded yesterday worked on my good box.  I
can't get it to work on my laptop however.  I can't tell if the initrd
is at fault or if there just isn't enough memory in my lap to run
this.  It only has 32 MB <sigh> but I can run Slackware on it.  Maybe
I just had better stick to slackware on my laptop.  Slackware has
always prided itself in being able to run on lower grade machines.  I
like Debian on my big machine so wanted to move it onto my other
machines but it falls over on my laptop.  I dunno if there is anything
I can do to make this happen or not.  Actually, would it be possible
to get speakup into the text installer instead? maybe the text
installer would have a better chance to run on my low grade laptop.
