I wouldn't be surprised if it took more than 30 minutes to detect and
configure thing on the machine. I installed it on my machine about a
month ago just to see what it's like and I was very disappointed (well,
it's not like I expected too much from Corel Linux). My hardware is
pretty much standard and I still had to reconfigure my video card and
nic and stuff. Basically I didn't see any point of waiting for more that
20 minutes and find out nothing was configured correctly. I don't know
what was going on inside Corel but they took a great Linux distro and
somehow made a piece of !@#$ out of it.
