Booting Indiana from USB Flash while in Michigan...

Finally got around to trying the OpenSolaris Developer Preview (aka Project Indiana) this morning... it's cool, it's partial, it's a step in the Right Direction... what really caught my eye was that I could place this CD-sizes image on USB Flash Drives and Boot Live... and it Just Worked in seconds... although on my Toshiba Satellite A205:

  1) Sound doesn't work
  2) Time of day wasn't correct (or asked for initially)

But, really, it's not disappointing at all for Preview 1... I like it!
