I installed it on my 8600.. worked fine. Nice KDE 3.2 (use Plastik ;)).
Few annoying things:
1) it asks you about CD 4
2) it doesn't install the ati/nvidia binary only drivers, but then
presents them as an option. For
my radeon at least, I used to need them to make it work in 2D, but I
guess they backported
the 2D support for the 9600.
3) it blasted my ears off when it unmuted the speakers. I booted in
rescue, turned off the
mixer restore until I had a chance to set it up. As was pointed out to
me later, a pair
of headphones in the socket might also have fixed it :)
