Anybody tried the new Avalon? I don't have yet enough courage to install it on my system.

I'm downloading it now and will install it on my win2003 box. Have to take my son to the movies and then the Rams are on TV tonight so it might not be till tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find.

I tried installing it on 2KServer last night and it failed with "Install Server won't start" or something. Found out I needed to update to .net framework 2.0 beta. Downloaded and installed that but got same error.

Hardware requirements are 1Ghz Pentium and I only had a 500Mhz P3 but I don't think that was the problem.
