I just installed them yesterday. It works quite easy, though you have to make 
sure you unload your kernel module, or strip your kernel. Follow the installer 
and it works like a charm.

The unregistered version required an reinstall every 4 months, but that's not 
too bad. And you get some screen when you boot the unregistered version. It's 
rather annoying since increases boot time.
