So, I re-did the install (fdisk the SD card) and let the initial boot
run. I fell asleep after waiting for 1/2 hour at the Moodle upgrade
point :-) Morning did yield a cleanly installed XS-on-XO.
"/etc/sysconfig/olpc-scripts/domain_config sfsu.edu" followed by a
reboot and everything worked as expected. Registered the first XO

Also installed Munin and Munin-node to collect graphed data (See
attached. Blip is when I registered the first XO). Looking good so
