I've installed that version on half a dozen or so machines with no 
issues except one and that turned out to be a video card issue.

It seemed that the mainboard had video built in and plugging in an 
external AGP card didn't disable the onboard one properly.  It looked 
like the memory map had a hole where the on board video card memory 
was located, but the OS didn't know not to use it.

The net result was that there were no icons and the ones that were 
visible were just black rectangles with no text.  Changing the 
external video card did alter the apearance of the desktop, whilst 
removing it completly did allow an almost normal but low resolution 
desktop to be seen.  Replacing the mainboard solved the problem.
