It worked ok for me with the debian distro
by the way, just a little warning i first tried to install debian on a 
sdhc external card, ran into several pbs and finally this sd card burn 
out (apparently it happened to some other people).
what i would avice then is to install debian on the internal card 
(removing xandros, which you have on the install cd anyway).
i rand pd-extended and supercollider rather smoothly.
