I do the same thing, not just because it's a calling from God, but because as 
many people that call me up asking me to fix their computer without even 
trying before calling me somewhat gets on my nerves :/

I now I shouldn't be saying this, but it's true. 2 weeks ago I had someone 
call me up telling me their computer was all out of whack, and had me under 
the impression their computer wasn't working. When I got there they couldn't 
find their LookOut icon on their desktop.

I couldn't run it in safe-mode either, but once I got the system installed I 
added noapic to all the lines except the windows.

If you have a test box or partition I would encourage you to give it a try, I 
don't think you'll be sorry.
