scp'ing to http://dev.laptop.org/~martin these 2 images (around 409MB size):

2438d2a520dd8b245f8f5e25e730e158853df34d  ks-200904110217.img.gz
6165f36d5885eabbec65accb3aa49458a67a8e63  ks-200904132252.img.gz

but the connection is slow, you might get better mileage by grabbing
the latest updates to the xs-livecd repository, and issuing:

 sudo ./util/mkext3img OLPC-School-Server-0.5.2-i386.iso

Which will give you an ext3 img file.

The second image has i586 kernel (and 386 glibc and openssl). Both
need some manual steps...

 - edit /etc/fstab
 - symlink vmlinuz, initrd
