I've been playing with booting fedora on the XO, mostly with anaconda
(F9/F10) to be able to run an install on the XO itself for the XS. I'll
try to boot the F11 kernel/installer when one is available, it looks
like there are issues building anaconda atm, there is no isolinux
directory on the mirrors...

Perhaps someone could shed some light on the issues with rawhide that
were uncovered thus far. Is there a tracker somewhere?
