The analog out works but I am not sure what people are talking about with the settings in "config.txt" I am using Debian Squeeze latest and there is no such file. I am about to test Archlinux and see if there is any better response. I did try anopther SD card too... but not any better. Different distro here I come!
The PI is practically unbrickable unless you try to power it with 12V instead of 5V. If you format the SD-card, and put a new image on it it should be "unbricked".
If config.txt isn't there (in /boot) then it hasn't been created, (during first boot) in that case simply created a normal text file (an ASCII cleartext file, not a wordprocessor file, such as .DOC or .RTF , but a simple .TXT file, and fill it with the commands you want to give (as shown in the wiki).
Also I like to stress that any HDMI or DVI monitor you connect to the PI should be on
when booting, or the PI cannot read monitor details out of the monitor (and with it automatically create an appropriate config.txt file).
