Looks fine to me, Chris.  I like the pages for each distro, although I'd
rank them in order of 'easiest to use' to 'most computer savvy'.  The
purist way would be to have a piece of PHP code that randomises the
order of display of each distro, so that no one distro is favoured.  But
in reality I don't think it would matter that much if you just put
Ubuntu first (as the most prominent new Linux distro), for example.

Ah, yes, IE6 compatibility.  I'm working on a Zope site that requires
Firefox compatibility.  All the IE people will see an ugly site and a
message saying "You're missing out on the advanced features provided by
Firefox.  Download some today." :-)

BTW, have you seen http://www.osvids.com?  It needs a catalogue and some
organisation like I need a coffee right now, but it's still good content
