I don't know why you aren't happy with your Live DTP CD, since it seems 
to me very stable -- imho, certainly more than an alpha release. First, 
it launched without problems, which is not so obvious on my Dell 
Inspiron 6000, with its SATA DVD drive and other such oddities. 
Secondly, every single program I'd launched worked without problems, 
Scribus 1.3.2cvs, Adobe Reader 7, Inkscape, Gimp, Cinepaint, etc. 
Certainly, I've noticed some small issues (like missing Polish glyphs in 
Scribus GUI and text frames, when I launch Live DTP CD with lang=pl...) 
but why don't you simply release it as the first release candidate and 
hear what people say, while your computer will be recovering from the 
crash?  A new DTP LiveCD RFE on the Scribus bug tracker could be a good 
solution for gathering the expected feedback, don't you think?

BTW, this ISO seems to be good enough as a nice give away for all those 
Windows guys who simply want to know how Scribus 1.3.x looks and works...
