Philip, 

talk to reuben caron about getting the image signed.

Personally, i think you are better off unlocking your XO's and using and
unsigned image. 

If you want to create a custom image, my best recommendation is that you
contract Ties Stuij or someone at OLPC to do it for you. Reuben may or
may not have the resources to do it himself.

Creating a custom image is a fair amount of work and you always have to
change it later.
