A quick question to the list:  Has anyone installed HP's alpha release?

Does it work of any of you?

If you have provided feedback to HP, did anyone ever get back to you?

In my case I installed the updated release for Itanium and it works  
up to a point:  the point being that it does not report the disk size  
correctly and so I can't save files to disk (which has zero free  

Also, it does not allow you to connect to your home directory.

So this makes it fairly broken, but an attempt to provide feedback to  
HP got no response.  Fortunately the older build of 2.2.8 does work,  
albeit very slowly..
